This year we remember John Muir – a man who influenced the preservation of the outdoors – as we reach the 100 year anniversary of his death, and celebrate the legacy he has left behind.
Each year many schools apply for the John Muir Award through the John Muir Trust. A great opportunity for an interdisciplinary topic on the life of John Muir can be facilitated by a fantastic free resource from the Scottish Book Trust. The Scottish Book Trust have produced a graphic novel to depict John Muir’s life as well as lesson plans and teaching notes. This would be ideal as a shared or guided reading text within midlle/upper Primary and lower Secondary.
