Halloween is an exciting time - make sure that your students are learning with this eye-opening resource. This unit celebrates bats as the remarkable and fascinating mammals that they are by using this Biomimicry product. Bats are amazing creatures that sometimes have a bad reputation. Here they provide inspiration for new ideas, focusing on medical applications. This is a lesson plan that will guide you through the process of using biomimicry and steam activities to inspire students to ask questions, study bats and use creative thinking to explore ideas.

These activities are fun and captivating.

Feel inspired, Be Creative and Make Change.

Some bats species have healing skins which is a very useful inspiration for medical applications such as skin healing plasters. There are bats that scientists are studying to gain insight into the macular disease. Join thousands of teachers who have discovered the benefits of studying nature in the classroom.

This resource has been prepared so that your students can use it on digital devices. I have selected suitable slides for you, you need to insert text boxes and you can also add instructions for your students.
