Biology Lessons First Hand

Home / Science / Biology

The living world

Biology is a vast subject containing many different topics but as a general overview is can be classed as the study of life processes and living things. As a school subject it has to be one of the more interesting lessons because it looks at how the natural world has developed to be the way it is today, from genetics and the human body to photosynthesis and the structure of leaves.

A key method of supporting the work done in the classroom or the laboratory is to take your pupils on an educational Biology of living things field trip. There are so many options available with many of the major attractions and study centres catering for the school science curriculum so chances are there will be options close to you. These could range from museums, zoos, wildlife centres, outdoor centres or simply the local natural environment, no matter where you take your pupils you can be sure that showing them Biology first hand will prove more popular and interesting than reading it out of a text book.

SEA LIFE London



Dive deep into a world of underwater discovery, students will understand and learn how to conserve the natural wonders of the world! Explore creatures of the Pacific Ocean, the Amazon rainforest and frozen extremities of Antarctic.

Together, pupils will develop a love for the natural world as they dive into a world of amazing discovery! We will introduce them to some of our core sea creatures – from sharks and jellyfish to sea turtles and seahorses! Pupils will be able to identify different ‘creature features’, understand creatures’ needs, and explore ocean, river and even rainforest habitats – making some new, colourful, and incredible friends along the way! The adventure can begin in your classroom with our free to download lesson plans. The first hour will encourage students to identify and describe sea creatures, the second hour lesson explores how human needs may differ or be the same in order to survive and be happy. Our exclusive education rates are £6 per pupil from September to February...
