Invertebrates are everywhere! Students will explore different habitats in the Botanic Gardens to find these amazing creatures, observe their external features and discover how they change as they grow. Plus, they’ll get hands-on when making their own invertebrate from natural materials to take home.
- Students will investigate pond life using dipnets to collect water invertebrates and observe their features and life changes.
- They will conduct a bug hunt to investigate which land invertebrates live in the Botanic Gardens and use ID charts to identify and describe what they find.
- Students also get to meet our resident stick-insects, learn about their amazing features and life cycle before creating an invertebrate using clay and loose parts.
