Work through the activities in this module to introduce your pupils to some of the seabirds you might have in your local area. Help them understand the concept of biosecurity as a way to protect seabird nesting islands from invasive predators.
Pupils can share information, experiences and opinions. They can explain processes and ideas. They can identify issues raised and summarise main points or findings. Pupils can clarify points by asking questions. Pupils can identify and classify examples of living things, past and present, to help them appreciate their diversity. Pupils can relate physical and behavioural characteristics to their survival or extinction.
