This week we revisited the habitats that had been made and placed in various areas of the outside classroom. This was the moment of truth as to whether their hypothesis was right or not. Due to the constant rain, we have had some of the habitats totally submerged under water.
What other factors did you discover that contributed to the condition of your habitat?
The children emptied the containers into a tray and sifted through to find any evidence that bugs had been enticed in.
Did you have any creatures in your habitat?
Were there any other signs that something had been in your habitat?
After they had checked for any creatures, the children then filled in an evaluation form. This gave them the opportunity to consider what they would do differently next time and just as importantly, what did they learn from this experiment?
