Botanical educational resources

Downloadable resources for botanical activities.

These are mainly aimed at children but some are suitable for a general audience with little prior botanical knowledge.

Some are stand-alone worksheets, others are designed to be used with real wild flower specimens. I have been running these activities at wildlife fairs and elsewhere for over ten years, with the Wild Flower Society and as a STEM Ambassador, so if you have any questions, please do get in touch.

These resources are free to download, but if you are using my work I would love to hear about it!
