Hedgehogs, moles and squirrels are famous characters in stories but they can also spark imagination in different ways.
Lessons about biomimicry require a brave approach to teaching since there is a move away from an approach where teachers are asking questions and looking for quick answers. Instead young learners are given an opportunity to shape and explore their own ideas. Biomimicry and bioinspiration are constantly evolving and new ideas are explored to solve problems and designing innovations.
Duplicate pages are included with different spelling.
