Try this at Home

We’ve got some great activities for you to try at home. Operation Earth is all about finding out about our amazing planet, so why not investigate your local Biodiversity using a Bug Survey, or observe your local weather using our homemade Rain Gauge.

  • Bug Survey

    From the eight-eyed spider to the seven-spotted ladybug and six-legged fly, what creatures might live near you? Become a nature detective and discover the weird and wonderful creatures that live in the trees, bushes and hedges by your front door!

  • Rain Gauge

    It’s always raining where I live! Or is it?

    Measuring the local weather is pretty important, not just for planning whether you need a coat or sunglasses, but because collecting information about the weather can help us see how local weather patterns may change over time.
