Investigating Microhabitats

Today we explored the school grounds to investigate a microhabitat on the field. We lifted up some logs by the hedges and discovered several mini-beasts living in the leaf litter! We even lifted some of our outdoor equipment to see if any bugs had made their homes underneath. In the end we spotted spiders, woodlice, worms, slugs and centipedes. We gathered some of the leaf litter and brought it into our warm, dry classroom so that we could take a closer look at the creepy-crawlies with our magnifying glasses.
