Wriggle and Crawl
Grab your coat and pooter – we’re going out and about on a minibeast hunt!
Sweep your nets in puddles and ponds and lift up logs to see who’s home.
Then set up your own minibeast laboratory and observe their every move. Add notes and labels and ask your own research questions – just like a real entomologist!
Learn about bees and worms and butterflies too. Can you make a food chain to show who eat who? Carry out investigations to find out more, like how far a snail travels in a day and how a spider catches its prey.
Then animate to show how your favourite bug transforms from one form to another, perhaps a caterpillar to a butterfly or a maggot to a fly…urgh!
On your belly, legs at the ready, it’s time to wriggle and crawl
