Woodland Workout - An Enterprising and Active Woodland Trail

Created by Calum Mackintosh | Published 06.29.11

Woodland Workout is a Forest Education Initiative project supported by Forestry Commission Scotland.  The resource has been developed by four teachers who took part in a five-day placement through the Excellence in Education Business Links (EEBL) programme funded by Careers Scotland.

The aim of the project was to produce a resource that could be easily used by teachers and enable them to offer a wide range of outdoor activities and  exercises to their pupils.

The result has been the production of ‘Woodland Workout’, which can be easily downloaded, adapted for different ages and abilities, and used with very few resource.  The activities have been adapted from a wide range of sources. These may be found in the useful books section of the teacher’s packs required.
