Course Content/Objectives

  • The CPD session aims to train teachers in the use of the excellent resources and facilities found in Aberdeen Biodiversity Centre and Cruickshank Botanic Garden. This will enable teachers to lead activities that increase their pupils’ awareness and experience of the natural world. 
  • Teachers will explore the different types of rainforests, their location around the world and their distinct characteristics.  Using microscopes, they will investigate the process of pollination and discover its importance for both local and global biodiversity.
  • This session also incorporates outdoor learning in the botanic gardens. Self-led visits can be booked following the CPD, within a specific timeframe.

Outcomes sought

Completion of this session will enable teachers to confidently deliver the “Resourceful Rainforests” workshop to their classes at the ABC through interactive and  outdoor learning whilst:

  • enhancing their own knowledge and understanding of the different types of rainforest in the world, and their characteristics.
  • increasing scientific literacy and creating greater curiosity.
  • comparing different areas of the world and developing an understanding of the important resources that exist in these significant places.
