RESOURCES FOR EDUCATORS
Welcome to the Resources for Educators page. We have created, collated and curated Nursery in a Box information, links to useful websites and organisations, a book list and more to help you in bringing nature and the growing of plants into your curriculum. These resources are tailored to support the Nursery in a Box growing program, while including a wide variety of subject areas.
We have also included stories of other schools using the Nursery in a Box. We would love to share your experiences using the Nursery in a Box, so please let us know if you have a story (and pictures!) to share.
To set the context of why we need to understand the importance of plants and trees on human survival, we suggest watching this short video. Share it with your students and hear their feedback.
OF FORESTS AND MEN
Yann Arthus-Bertrand was appointed by the United Nations to produce the official film for the International Year of Forests in 2011.
This beautiful video gives a global overview of the impact of forests on our earth and on human populations, and of the impact of the human population on the forests.
You can read the Transcript of ‘Of Forests and Men’ here.
