The campaign includes practical activities based on resources developed by Kew, with a particular emphasis on plants. See the resource list below.  These resources have been translated from the original 'The Great Plant Hunt' into the country languages and shared with the participating schools. Translated resources are made available to particpating schools through their National Operator. Further practical activities based on resources developed by FEE, focus on biodiversity.  Participating schools are encouraged to investigate and map the various habitats on their schools grounds and identify plant and animal species present.
