Planning a School Trip Around Minibeasts, Reptiles and Insects!

If your educational group is looking to get up close and personal with a python or would prefer to investigate a variety of insect species, then we’ve got the ultimate School Trip for you!  A Minibeast, Reptile and Insect School Trip is a great way to get out of the classroom and explore the natural environment! Students will be given the chance to study a wide range of animal species, some of which they may have never seen before! From centipedes and crustaceans to chameleons and turtles, there is something to engage all students, even the squeamish ones!!

But animals are not the only thing that students will be educated about. They will also have the opportunity to study eco-evolutionary dynamics and evaluate the importance of this phenomenon. After taking part in a Minibeast, Reptile and Insect School Trip, students will come away with an improved understanding of the natural world and appreciate the significance of our wildlife.

So, if this is something that your educational group would be interested in, come and check out the numerous Minibeast, Reptile and Insect School Trip destinations we have on offer here at UK School Trips. You will not be disappointed plus many of these fantastic venues provide tailor-made educational tours, workshops and presentations inter-linked to your key-stage curriculum study at school.
