Minibeast hunt!

Date: 7th Dec 2017 @ 8:26am

This week in Science, as part of our animals including humans topic, we have been learning all about minibeasts. We now know that the scientific name for these animals is invertibrates and that all animals in this animal family have no backbone. The children really enjoyed learning about the different types of invertibrates such as: insects, arachnids, molluscs and crustaceans. 

After sorting different invertibrates into the four main categories, the children went on a minibeast hunt on the field. They used a magnifying glass to get a closer look at what they found and recorded their findings in a table. As it was so cold outside we only managed to find worms, beatles and slugs but the children had lots of fun looking for them!
