Learning about science doesn’t have to be just about doing experiments. It can be as simple as looking in the garden for bugs.
- take photos and try to identify the bugs from the photos.
- count legs
- look at colours
- draw the bugs
- compare the different places you find different bugs.
First we looked around,
and found our first bug!
Then we found a fly on an old frisbee.
Then there was much excitement over a bee!
Even very little people can join in.
Then we went on a bike ride to look further afield, and found a cow! This led to a long discussion about whether or not we could get milk from ‘ the things that dangled down’.
Children can have a brilliant time doing the simplest of activities, bug hunting was especially great for me as all three children enjoyed it.
