This section of our web site includes a variety of ideas for activities
and projects which relate to badgers, animals and the wider environment. These are examples of things you might like to do with children
(whether at home or at school). They might also be useful to help generate
awareness in the community or fund-raising for badger charities.
We have devised a list of ideas and categorised them into suggested
suggested age bands to give you an idea where to start. The age bands
are suggested based on our experiences of what children at different
ages know about badgers. However, many activities are suitable for wider
age ranges - or where particular children know more or less than usual
about badgers or wildlife.
The Teaching Materials include a series of
PowerPoint presentations - these being designed
to be used on a projector in a classroom situation. They are
also suitable for badger groups to use for talks to the public.
