Oh I do like to be beside the…. La La Lakeside! Learn about wildlife and staying safe at the lakes.
La La Lakeside looks at how we can stay safe at reservoirs and the wildlife you can find at the lakes! Download the resources from the left hand tab. For KS2, use the guides to think about invertebrates and vertebrates.
Our reservoirs are so beautiful, aren’t they!? But we’ve carefully designed them. In fact, they’re actually big machines which hold water ready to be treated. It’s really important that we don’t swim in them. Squidge N Snap illustrate why with Prof H20!
Places like Chew Valley Lake and Cheddar Reservior are popular indeed with wildlife! Why not download our dragonfly, bird, or butterfly guide for your visit!
So why not take the guides out to the lakeside! Use it to consider whether any of the animals and insects are invertebrates or vertebrates.
Vertebrates: have a backbone, like us humans and other mammals
Invertebrates: don’t have a backbone, like worms
Clue: only one of our guides are on vertebrates.
