 We have fantastic facilities at the Glencoe Visitor Centre to offer a variety of topics to primary schools.  We can tailor a number of subjects to fit the 5-14 Environmental Studies curriculum, as well as coincidentally falling into other curriculum subjects such as maths and English!

An example of the topics we offer are: Woodlands; Plants – breaking down into photosynthesis, identification, form and function; Animals – breaking down into red deer, hibernation, animal movement; seeds, berries and fruits; new growth/spring; food chains; pond dipping; cultural history; geology.  This list is by no means inclusive!

We can offer an activity at levels A through to F led by our ranger staff or regional education officer, or alternatively your school could visit the visitor centre and look around the exhibition without a ranger guide.

Either way, we’d love to see your school in Glencoe!
