 We visited a bog (mire) on Dartmoor to learn about why they are an important habitat. We worked with Devon Wildlife Trust to explore this amazing location. The children did lots of classification of plants and creatures using keys and spotter guides. It was a really hot day so the children paddled in the stream to cool off and to catch small fresh water animals. 
It was a brilliant learning experience and a lovely day as well.
