Habitat Discovery Day – Wildlife

Key subject: Science

Discover the wildlife on land in our London open space.


Students explore the weird and wonderful world of minibeasts in a variety of terrestrial habitats. Through collecting, identifying and classifying the invertebrates, discover which areas make the best home for minibeasts and see if you can survive the 'Needs of Life 'game. Then use binoculars to see the birds that also call this unique habitat home and see how they link into food chains.


Session covers: Working scientifically to observe land invertebrates including habitat requirements, variation, adaptation, classification and food chains; gathering and recording information.

Suitable for: KS1 and KS2
