MINI BEAST HUNT
The woodland is home to all kinds of wildlife that the children can discover and observe. There are many different investigations that children can take part in. Activities range from simple observation with hand lenses and collecting tubs to the creation of habitat piles and ‘minibeast hotels’. Children learn about different adaptations, food chains and life cycles. The creatures that live in the log pile and the branches of trees can be surveyed and compared. Observations of the movement and interaction of creatures can be recorded and the discoveries can be researched further in follow up activities at school.
