A snowfall contains BILLIONS of snowflakes but did you know that no two snowflakes are ever the same?! Snowflakes are made of crystals of ice and different temperatures can lead to different types of snowflakes.
Just beneath the waves in shallow tropical seas you'll find a world teeming with life. It's here that we find coral reefs - colourful habitats where countless creatures live.
Unfortunately like many habitats, coral reefs are struggling with the changing climates and environments we see today. These changes lead to 'coral bleaching'.
Dragons do not only populate the myths and legends of the past, but also the world around us.
Zoology PhD student Tom Jameson takes us on a journey of discovery with the world's largest reptiles.
While we sleep at night, a world of nocturnal animals are going about their lives outside. Creatures like foxes and mice, owls and badgers and bats and moths tend to sleep or shelter during the day, and search for food at night.
There are many materials, containers and items that we put into the recycle bin. While recycling is one way to look after our planet, they can also make excellent crafting materials.
The natural world also provides us with some excellent crafting ingredients. Discover new colours and textures by collecting these up during a walk or in your garden.
The tips below will help you to get started…

Normally found in the krill-rich waters of the Arctic and Antarctic, the humpback whale swims up to 25,000 km per year, including to warmer waters to breed and give birth.
The seasonally-changing songs of male humpbacks echo through the ocean waters. Measuring up to 16m in length and weighing 25-30 tonnes, these large mammals eat krill, which they filter out of the water through hair-like bristles in their mouth called baleen. They are incredibly agile, often swimming near the surface, where they fluke and breach.
