PUFFIN DETECTIVES: ONLINE

Early and First Level - Online Workshop

Class Level: P2 - P4

Duration: 30 minutes

In this interactive storytelling workshop, learners will investigate the effects of climate change on Scottish wildlife via the investigations of two young pufflings living on the Isle of May. They will discover more about these iconic birds and their way of life, fitting them into the wider picture of wildlife on and around the island. Through a series of fun activities, they will find out how variations in weather affect butterfly populations, seal pups and ultimately the food which the puffins depend on.
