Discover Earth activities
Students can investigate the health of global freshwater ecosystems on a scale never seen before. Collecting water quality data at their local water-bodies, students can help researchers understand how humans are influencing the health of our fresh water.
We depend on healthy soils, and earthworms keep soils healthy. Earthworm Watch enables students to develop scientific literacy skills linked to the Science National Curriculum through hands-on experiences categorising earthworms and soils, taking part in a real scientific enquiry.
Students can investigate decomposition processes vital to plants, soil and the environment with The Teabag Index, an accessible project to bring this vital ecosystem process to life.
Discover Earth is free of charge.
