The Bulb Project
Temperatures across the UK in 2021
Take a look at the average temperatures reported by schools in 2020-21, how this might have
affected the flowering dates, and how it compares to previous years. This challenge is based
on reading data from line graphs.
This challenge looks at the average rainfall reported by schools in 2020-21, how this might have affected the flowering dates, and how it compares to previous years. This challenge is based on reading data from bar charts.
This challenge is designed to be a simplified and combined version of the first two challenges.
It will require reading data from bar charts, and thinking about how the weather could
have affected where daffodils flowered first in the UK.
Bulb Project Board Game
Each player is a daffodil bulb that has been planted at your school. Your objective is to be the first bulb to flower by reaching the Finish stone. Along the way you might pick up some cards that will help you to grow or slow you down.
This is a fun way to get talking about the different factors that affect the growth of your bulbs. You can download the board and cards for printing below. You will also need one six-sided die and a counter for each player (recommended 2-6 players).
