Learning resources for badger cubs of all ages
Welcome to your badger education hub, where you’ll find lots of FREE resources to help with learning at home and at school. Our learning resources are designed to support educators and learners to explore everything about badgers, their habitats and the issues they face.
Professor Brock – from our friends at Binfield Badger Group – has come along to help us, making sure there’s always lots for you to learn about the fascinating lives of badgers.
The Secret Life of Badgers film
Our educational film, packed with real-life footage of badgers and clear, bright infographics, is timed to celebrate ‘National Badger Day’ on 6th October. But as every day is Badger Day for our charity, you can use it any time of the year!
This 12-minute film is designed especially for assembly and classroom use for KS1 and KS2 learners and is a great place to start learning about badgers, helping to educate the next generation of badger protectors and wildlife enthusiasts.
The Secret Life of Badgers is broken up into several easy sections and is narrated by Billy Heaney, an enthusiastic zoologist and wildlife presenter. It's suitable for KS2 as a standalone 'plug and play' activity, or for KS1 and KS2 as a 'play and pause' interactive assembly.
The following resources include Teacher notes and Pupil worksheets:
