The Peak District National Park’s special wildlife and habitats make this the perfect place for a habitat study. This is a day of discovery. Pupils will use scientific equipment to explore and compare 2-3 different habitats, identify and categorise the living things they find, and learn about amazing adaptations to survive and thrive in these habitats.
