Alien Species in Britain, Friend or Foe?

Introduction

This learning journey looks at the different plants and animals not native to Britain, and aims to teach children about the habitats that they live in.

At the end, children can then use the interactive quiz to test their knowledge, and decide for themselves whether alien species are friends or foes. There are also many different worksheets and fact files that can be used as part of a lesson.
