For some general background about these units and how to use them, please read our teachers’ briefing.

Undertaking this unit, the children look at the life cycles of a plant and a bird that are both found in a working quarry.

They also look at the increasing incidences of peregrine falcons nesting in working quarries and find out about these exciting birds and their life cycles.
