Teaching Resources

If you’re planning work on peatlands or blanket bog, there’s a good range of materials you can download.


Scottish Natural Heritage has three resources for primary education about peatlands:

Peatlands: A Guide to Educational Activities for Schools (2014) 

Schools Out - Fieldwork made easy: Peatlands (1990) 

Wild, Wet and Wonderful: A teaching pack for peat bog projects. (1990)


The Irish Peatland Conservation Council publish Bogs in the Classroom, a collection of activity ideas and other resources.


For secondary school students, the UK’s National Parks have created a learning programme called More than Just a Bog.


Moors for the Future, based in the Peak District and South Pennines, also have several educational resources.
