Bulb Project Resources

Below are the links to the Edina Trust Extension Bulb Project resources as well as details of the resources provided by the National Museum of Wales 'Spring Bulbs for Schools' project on their website.

New for 2018: Predicting Flowering Dates

This is a new presentation that can be done with the class or by individual pupils. Use the data collected by schools so far to try and predict when your daffodils might flower!

There are two different levels. First, the higher level version is intended for upper Key Stage 2 / upper Second Level and includes creating a hypothesis and doing the calculations to work out the average temperature and total rainfall.

The lower-level version has the calculations already done (check the document to find the averages for your school) and aims to use simpler language. It is intended for lower Key Stage 2 / lower Second Level.
