Mini Beasts In Their Habitat KS1
All living things need food, water and shelter. Let’s get out and about to discover what lives in our herb garden, meadow, hedge or woodland. We look at camouflage with a a wooly worm game and take the opportunity to identify plants and animals, their parts and life stages while hunting for a range of mini-beasts.
Pupils can build mini-beast shelters and make mini-beasts out of clay. We will explore habitats in different ways using our senses to discover colour, scent, sound and texture. We care about all our creatures on site and try to help by providing healthy habitats.
(Allow a short day and bring lunch)
Post visit work might include a healthy habitat survey at your school
