Big Schools' Birdwatch is a simple activity that gets you and your class closer to the birds visiting your school grounds.
Taking just one hour, the Birdwatch can be carried out in school, or by visiting a local outdoor space. The Birdwatch works across a wide age and ability range and there's plenty of flexibility to run it how you like. It could be a simple stand alone activity, or the centrepiece of cross-curricular studies, project work or as part of work to improve your school grounds.
Thanks to everyone who took part in Big Schools' Birdwatch 2013. We'll be back in January 2014.
We also have specially designed resources for younger children. Little Schools' Birdwatch is for under fives to take part in, while older students (11 - 14 year olds) can get involved in Really Big Schools' Birdwatch. The Birdwatch can also be adapted for youth groups, eg Brownies and Cubs.
