B-Lines Schools Resources

Everyone living, working or managing land within the B-Lines can take action for pollinators and help to develop the B-Lines network.  And schools with extensive schools grounds and many enthusiastic young people are well placed to get involved.  We are encouraging schools to participate in B-Lines and we have developed a set of pollinator teaching resources for primary schools. Each of the downloadable lesson plans are based around, and have activities supporting the National Curriculum.
