Sustainability resources for 8-12 year olds

Mind the Gap has launched its new-look website, with lots of free teaching resources for primary and secondary school teachers.  Mind the Gap resources explore sustainability issues and encourage students to think about their own lives and communities.

The Mind the Gap website has been updated to make the activities fun and easy to use.  The activities are available free to all teachers and aimed at those with students aged between 8 and 12.  Topics include:

  • Food and drink
  • Transportation
  • Pollution

Mind the Gap want to know what you think of their resources. Try out the resources and complete their short online survey. You can win a free copy of The Curious Mind of Young Darwin, an FSC-produced book packed with hints and tips for young naturalists to explore the outdoors.

Working with schools across Europe, Mind the Gap is being led by environmental education charity the Field Studies Council (FSC) in partnership with recognised experts in environmental education.
