Alliance Youth Works
If you go down to the woods today, you're sure of a big surprise because the resident bear, Broney is a clever and cheeky so and so. Left in charge of all the bears and the picnic lunches brought by the visiting boys and girls, Broney has a bad habit of taking them all for a wander around the forest, without an adult! The children with their adults in tow must then follow the paw prints left around the forest to catch the renegade teddies. Along the way the kids will find a multitude of interesting facts about the local Mourne biodiversity at Kilbroney and take part in a range of activities in the forest.
It sets out to:
> Help younger children understand that a forest is a wonderful and awesome place.
> Help them understand the connectedness of the flora and fauna of the forest.
> Have fun with a variety of activities that will encourage observation and identification.
> Encourage a responsible attitude towards wildlife and the environment.
The programme includes:
> Tutor input
> Reflection time
> Games and fun activities
> Multi-media presentations
> Worksheets and booklets
> Arts and Crafts
