Have you heard all about the BBC’s Terrific Scientific investigations going on at the moment? Well they’re a series of investigations that are open to all schools to get involved with, to help them explore science and get students learning about scientific concepts in a fun way.

So far, they’ve had investigations on taste, water and time (with fab resources included too!). Currently though, investigation number four is going on and it’s all about trees. Within it, they’re exploring things like how many species of tree there are and what trees do all year. You can find lesson resources, student resources and more from the BBC on trees to help you, but we’ve some Key Stage 1 resources of our own on the theme, that you can use alongside the BBC’s resources too.

They’re fantastic resources for learning about trees but make sure you don’t go barking up the wrong tree – use Search on EducationCity to find the resources we’ve recommended…
