Grade 4 build Bug Motel in Outdoor Education

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

In late March the Grade 4 class spent an afternoon at school with Mr Licence and Mrs Mayall building a Bug Motel. The students collected bark, grass, rocks, sticks and any natural items that might attract insects and other small creatures. Mr Licence had previously built a shelter out of bricks and timber and the students filled all the available spaces with the materials they had collected.

Following on from this activity the children used bamboo sticks and zip ties to create living spaces for small creatures. They placed their bamboo shelters in trees around the playground. Over the next few months the children will watch carefully to see if any creatures take up residence in their bug motel.
