Minibeast hunting in micro-habitats
Last week we went in the wooded areas around the playground and into the decking area near the pond. We were looking for Minibeasts!
We discussed the different areas that Minibeasts like to live and why. After thinking about the rules we need to remember on our search for bugs we set off ‘to the wilderness’ armed with a Petri dish and a pooter-a special tool to ‘suck up’ the bugs!
We found a rage of creepy crawlies including spiders, beetles and earwigs. We then went back to class to record our findings and discuss the differences between the various micro habitats that we saw.
ps sorry for late blog post class 5, my iPad wouldn’t upload the photos!
