I Spy Minibeasts!

Primary 2/3 have been busy detectives, hunting out minibeasts in the quiet garden.  We found woodlice (but some of us call them slaters), a centipede, ladybirds and lots of slugs as well as lots more!

Today we tried to catch some minibeasts in a Pitfall Trap.  We had to dig a hole for a cup and to keep our minibeasts safe we put cardboard over the top to protect them from any rain.  After only a few hours we checked on our traps and we already found a slater.  We had a look at this more closely with our microscopes.
