The "Spring Bulbs for Schools" Project
Cowell, Danielle; Watkins, Richard
Primary Science Review, n97 p25-28 Mar-Apr 2007
It is becoming clear that human influences are a significant factor driving climate change. Education is one of the main weapons in influencing patterns of behaviour and teachers inevitably have a crucial role to play. Teachers need to be fully aware of issues surrounding climate change in order to be positive role models for children and to foster balanced and informed opinions--key elements of scientific literacy. They need to provide children with fun and positive examples to help them become aware of and adapt to the changes that climate change is bringing. This is why Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum of Wales offers the "Spring Bulbs for Schools" project to all schools in Wales. In this article, the authors describe the museum outreach project in Wales that gives children the chance to adopt their own spring bulbs and take part in a real climate-change study.
