Introducing Beyond The Panda

Welcome to Beyond the Panda learning resources. This resource has been designed and developed to enable learners and learning providers to investigate, study and explore a variety of topics within the overall context of giant pandas and China.

On the following pages you will find a range of interdisciplinary learning activities aimed at providing relevant, challenging and enjoyable learning experiences for children and young people from early years onwards.

Each set of resources begins with an interesting lesson stimulus followed by a set of differentiated learning activities designed to meet the varied needs of children and young people. Each activity has background notes for teachers, clear curriculum links and a list of suggested resources including books, websites and video links.

China Mobile Library

Our China Mobile Library provides ‘panda boxes’ to schools for a 3 day loan period.

The resources include our unique educational games and jigsaws. An Education Officer will visit the school for one of the days. Teacher sessions are also available on how to use the resources.

Costs start at £100 per school for one class use. Each additional class using the panda box only costs an extra £20.*

*There may be additional costs for Highlands and Islands. Please enquire.
