Course: Teddy Bears' Trail | Propagate Learning

  • Welcome to Teddy Bears' Trail online area

    All the resources in this online area are part of a comprehensive programme package to enhance both yours and your pupils' learning experience. There are a mix of learning resources to use in the classroom, outdoors or as homework activities; as you will see below they are split up into classroom and outdoor activities so you can easily find resources to suit your lesson plan - just select a section title to view that section. 

    Feel free to pick and choose the resources you would like to do and these can be done before and/or after your visit to the Garden; or follow our suggested learning pathway outlined below to get the most out of the resources. If you're not booked onto a guided session at the Garden, all the resources stand on their own and will bring a little bit of the Botanics to you instead!
