On a visit from Goska, children have an opportunity to re-discover their natural surroundings while exploring wildlife in their school yard, as well as have a peek into real wilderness thanks to curious items brought to school by Goska. Discussion and working in groups (with worksheets provided by Goska) follow the hand-on activities.

Children learn to understand the principles of ecology and to value biodiversity. Workshops enable children to notice wildlife around them, regardless of where they live. They learn what habitats are, why some of them are endangered and why we should be concerned about it. Goska always emphasises the need for re-connection with nature and encourages children to spend more time outdoors and develop their observation skills.

Here are just some examples of more specific topics Goska can cover, depending on a teacher’s requirements:

  • Biodiversity in the school yard

  • Climate change

  • Pollinators

  • Garden birds

  • Peatlands

  • Overfishing

  • Responsible farming

  • Creepy-crawlies around you

  • ... and any other subject within the curriculum strands listed above.

Goska can accompany students on field trips to local places of interest (woodland, bog, lake, park, museum). This will allow children to experience more diverse environments.

Goska is a qualified biologist and ecologist and has worked with primary school children since 2014.
