The plan is to develop the first of a series of books with hands-on activities for children/adolescents to experience and learn about their heritage—cultural and natural heritage.

This first handbook within a series will be the general one and will cover a variety of ‘learn and do’ activities for children within the different areas of heritage—natural and cultural.

A CD will accompany the handbook and provide a close-up audio-visual experience of the topics covered in the book.

Later, separate activity booklets will be developed by theme within each area of heritage. For example, within Cultural Heritage, separate booklets will focus on, for example, Built heritage, Traditional Crafts and Festivals. Within the area of Natural heritage, separate books will be developed on Rivers, Trees/Forests, Wildlife, etc.

The content of the books will link naturally with topics in the national curriculum. Therefore, trainings will be offered to teachers on how to use the books.

Earning will be from selling the package (activity books and CD) to schools and to a wider audience through bookstores.

Students and teachers

Benefit :

Through fun and engaging activities described in the handbook, children will get a chance to ‘interact’ with aspects of their heritage in a way they probably have never before, as much of our heritage tends to be taken for granted.

The books will enrich the learning experience of topics covered in the social studies and science curriculums.

    Great idea: Very good to support both cultural and natural heritage. Very good to support the national curriculum. Very good to provide hands-on-activities. Children are more likely to enjoy and remember!
