Sound safari

Listen up! How many different sounds can you hear in the woods?

Nature is so noisy! Get your ear to the ground and listen to the woods.

  • Find a quiet spot, stand still and listen carefully. What can you hear?
  • Try and pinpoint different sounds – insects, birds and trees
  • How many noises can you make?

Once you’ve heard everything on the sheet, try listening out for other woodland sounds. What do you think they could be?
