FEL School Orchard Publications
***Now Available as a Digital Resource***
Forth Environment Link has developed a Resource Pack for teachers with over 100 activities to integrate orchards into the curriculum and to support and enhance outdoor learning.
“A fruit tree is one of the best resources for outdoor learning and teaching”.
Many schools have planted fruit trees in their grounds and use them extensively. These trees are well-maintained and cherished. Others, perhaps because they have not been integrated into the curriculum, can become neglected and a valuable resource lost.
Over many years, with lots of pupils and teachers, we have developed ideas to use orchard trees and their fruit in every-day curricular activities. This Teachers’ Resource Pack is a collation of over 100 of them. An orchard can be just a few fruit trees but it can greatly enliven and enrich your programme of outdoor learning and provide a very valuable focus for many aspects of Eco-school activities.
