* New* Smugglers resource pack
Based on activities that we have been delivering with schools in Devon, 'Coast Path Explorers' are launching a 'Smugglers resource pack.
This pack is full of tried and tested ideas and activities to complete on the Coast Path, in your school grounds, as well as in your classroom. This pack can add local context to the popular school topic of 'Pirates'. It is cross-curriculum and adaptable for KS1 and KS2.
The legend for OS maps, mentioned in the pack can be downloaded here.
There are a number of videos on our youtube channel which give a great introduction to the Coast Path. Visit: https://www.youtube.com/user/SWCoastPath for more details.
