Up Close with Minibeasts – Stage 2
Thursday 22nd and Friday 23rd October
Welcome to the wonderful world of mini beasts. In this environmental science program students learn all about the wide variety of mini beasts, their life cycles and habitats. Students are shown how to safely search for and catch mini beasts before beginning to collect and record what they find. Students learn to identify and categorize using a mini beast recording sheet with ID drawings. iPads are used to photograph and record the different species they have found. Students then head back to the science lab at Bournda Environmental Education Centre where they can further explore their mini beasts using a high powered digital microscope. Now they are really ‘Up Close with Minibeasts!’
Program cost – $2 per student.
