experts as one unit, thatshows teachers and their class a way to tackle the topic from different angles(pupils
will not only find out about some of the intracacies of the forest ecosystem, observe water directly in the
forest, but also plan how to correctly pack for a trip to the forest and have a go at doing something good for
