What’s in the Dee Riverbank?

The ‘Dee Riverbank’ contains masses of resources – books, leaflets, videos and CDs, posters, maps, identification keys, worksheets, river dipping equipment and artefacts – the list is endless. Importantly, the Riverbank also includes a user’s guide with lesson plans centred around the 5-14 curriculum for:

  • River Heritage
  • Landscape / River Systems
  • Natural history / Biodiversity
  • Expressive Arts
  • Field Studies.

The Dee Riverbank will therefore help teachers and others to deliver projects that will allow school children to explore all aspects of the River Dee and is an excellent teaching resource not just for environmental projects but for music, history, language and literature.
