The Year 1 class is learning about living things in Science this term. Last week we put on our detective hats to explore the school yard and search for living things.
We found that detectives have to look carefully and finding bugs wasn’t as easy as we thought. We ended up catching some ants, a fly and some beetles.
The students were responsible detectives by caring for the living things by:

  • Catching them carefully;
  • Not touching them;
  • Returning them where back to they were found.

The students then drew the bug they found after studying them with a magnifying glass and observing how they move. Next time we will be exploring the Ag block Garden to hopefully find some more interesting bugs.
