Minibeast Profiles: Some interesting invertebrates

 

 

Let hunt for  Mini-Beasts Let's take a walk around the school and hunt for mini beasts! Where should we look?   The first place to look is inside the building. Window frames and sills make a great place for ladybirds, spiders, flies and maybe even the cocoon of a butterflies.

 

 

Next let's look outside. What can we find in the grass? What might be living under a rock?? Outside, cracks in sidewalk , under plant pots are all places of shelter for a variety of minibeasts.The walls of a building and  other climbing plants provide an excellent and safe habitat often used throughout the year by small minibeasts.Let's look for creatures in the grass and dirt.  You might find ants, earthworms, millipedes and centipedes.
