Every garden is an individual fragment of a larger whole, an urban ecosystem structured by the tastes and choices of millions of home owners. How do we choose to interact with nature, and what are the effects on wildlife? Today we will explore just one element, considering the ecological consequences of our spending almost �250M per year on food for garden birds. This is an enormous ecological perturbation, an unintended experiment, taking place in every other garden in the country. Do birds benefit? What happens to other species? Can we do it better?

  2. ESTA

Try a series of �hands-on'demonstrations and activities to highlight key aspects of the structure of the Earth and the evidence we have for this structure. The practical activities address common misconceptions about the state (solid/liquid) of the Earth�s layers and about the thickness of the crust and the Earth�s dimensions. The activities will not only consolidate your own understanding - but involve you in �off the shelf'activities ready to use in your teaching next week.
