How should I prepare my group/class for this workshop?

What will my pupils do in the workshop?

The Get Energised Magic Carpet encourages children to think about the weather and how we use it, the wind in particular. Through a mixture of songs, stories and activities, they will find out how we get electricity from the wind.
