Explore biosecurity solutions as a class and the different ways people can help island nesting seabirds. Pupils can start to develop and test their knowledge by playing the games developed and designed Scottish Primary pupils.
Pupils can discuss the environmental impact of human activity and suggest ways in which we can live in a more environmentally responsible way. Through contributing their views, time, and talents, pupils understand how they can bring about positive change in the wider community. When pupils engage with others, they can respond in ways appropriate to their role, show that they value others’ contributions, and use these to build their thinking. Pupils can show understanding of what they listen to or watch by responding to literal, inferential, evaluative and other types of questions, and by asking different kinds of questions of their own.
