Invertebrates are everywhere! Students 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 creating an invertebrate from natural materials to take home.
- Students investigate pond life using dipnets to collect water invertebrates and observe their features and life changes.
- Students 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 meet our resident stick-insects, learn about their amazing features and life cycle and create an invertebrate using clay and loose parts.
