It is important that you plan and prepare your lessons so that they stimulate your pupils’ interest. Part of this planning involves identifying resources that will engage your pupils in learning. One valuable resource you can explore and use is your local environment, where not only do you have people who have expertise in a wide range of topics but you also have access to a range of natural resources. Using such dynamic resources will: motivate your pupils; stimulate their thinking; open their eyes to the richness and diversity around them; develop a link with the local community; provide you with support; link the curriculum to your pupils’ lives; introduce them to new experiences.
