Activity 1 – Recycling
I have sent an activity pack which relates to the following YouTube video. Watch the video and then complete the activity pack, then you will be all set to take charge of the recycling in your house!
Activity 2 – webcams
In these times when our time outside is so limited and I for one am missing seeing all the amazing wildlife we have in this area, I thought it would be lovely to invite wildlife into our homes instead.
This is a link to the website Discover wildlife which provides links to webcams around the world which are focused birds and wildlife.
Have a look at some of the links and see what you can see. Remember, some of the webcams are in countries where it might be night time when you are looking – I have seen a magnificent osprey sleeping in the USA this morning!
Choose a webcam to follow (more than one if you like) and use the attached sheet to make of record of your chosen wildlife. Try and have a look at the webcam for ten minutes each day (this is entirely up to you – just see how time works for you) and record what you can see and hear – remember to turn the volume up.
This morning I have seen blue tits, chaffinches, a female blackbird, ospreys in the USA and UK, peregrine falcons in Nottingham and France, rabbits, goldfinches, black headed gulls and avocets! Absolutely amazing. Be warned – this can get quite addictive J. I can’t stop watching!!
Please be aware you may have to be a little patient if nothing is there when you first switch on – if you wait who knows what may show up! Just been back on and seen elephants with calves, some kind of antelope, zebras and a coot!
I would recommend the Tau Waterhole in South Africa.
