The following educational activities for children are available:

Invasive Species Activity for 7-11 year olds

  • Designed as a 1 hour lesson.
  • Contains two activities – ‘native or invasive’ card game and ‘detective challenge’.
Students will learn what ‘invasive species’ are, where they have come from, what makes them so successful, and the harmful impacts they can have on native wildlife. Using what they have learned, the students will identify some common native and invasive species, and come up with some simple ways to help to prevent the spread of invasive species.
