Medium (5-11 activities)

Over three lessons our Discovering The Hidden World resource will allow students to explore and compare a variety of natural habitats and their distinctive features, including bioluminescence. Plus, as an extension for more able students, delve into the consequences of changing environmental conditions and the adaption capabilities of different species.

Students will use creative writing and design to fashion their own dragon and demonstrate how their new friend is suited to its own particular environment, helping to deliver on both the English literacy and art & design curricula, as well as elements of science and biology.

To find out more, download the Teachers' notes and other resource files below. The Design a Dragon competition closes 1 March.

Updating our resources

We have developed a large catalogue of educational resources since launching in 2013, and some references and terminology will inevitably have dated as society and language evolves. We are aware of this and will be updating resources when our production schedule allows.
