Grab your coat and magnifying glass – we’re going out and about on a minibeast hunt! Sweep your nets in ponds and lift up logs to see who’s home. Then set up a minibeast laboratory and observe their every move. Add notes and labels and ask research questions – just like a real entomologist! Learn about bees and worms and butterflies too. Can you make a food chain to show who eats who? Carry out investigations to find out more, like how far a snail travels in a day and how a spider catches its prey. Then animate to show how your favourite bug transforms from one form to another, perhaps a caterpillar to a butterfly or a maggot to a fly – urgh! On your belly, legs at the ready, it’s time to wriggle and crawl!
