Nature Detectives (incursion)

Early Stage 1 and Stage 1

When we discover that all the small animals have disappeared from the school, students become Nature Detectives and search for clues and evidence of small animals at your school. Students search for soil invertebrates and identify and group living things using their external features. Our Nature Detectives complete a scientific drawing of one of the invertebrates collected.  

Activities include:

  • Conducting a leaf litter survey, searching for soil invertebrates and placing them into bug pots.
  • Completing a scientific drawing.
  • Classification activity using aniumals collected. 

The duration of this program is approximately 50 minutes.
