Resources to motivate and inspire!
Biomimicry is an exciting way to inspire pupils to observe the natural world and to develop a creative approach to problem solving by looking at nature for sustainable solutions.
WWF and TES are developing a series of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) materials designed to help young people build their knowledge and understanding of sustainability issues, explore solutions and develop key skills so that they feel empowered to take action. Our Inspiration from Nature classroom resource has been produced to help primary schools engage with sustainable development through the innovative approach of biomimicry.
Learning from nature
The aim of this resource is to encourage 7 to 11 year olds to develop their curiosity about the natural world and work together to explore creative solutions to sustainability, by looking at nature’s own designs.

Our Inspiration from Nature resources include simple activities and activity sheets to help them think about how we can learn from nature in the way we make, use and dispose of our stuff to eliminate waste. The suite of activities encourages a ‘systems thinking’ approach, which is about fostering children’s natural curiosity and encouraging them to make connections and recognise relationships, trends and patterns in our increasingly complex world.
