Why bugs?

It all started when we learnt that Room 11 was learning about bugs.  Jaden

Room 17’s thoughts on their bug hunting adventure:

Shona: ‘It was the smallest baby worm I’d ever seen’.

George: ‘The caterpillar peed on me!’

Tommy: ‘No way I’m going to look at spider – They creep me out, lucky we only looked at insects’.

Aliff: ‘An insect hunt? Just like a scavenger hunt – But better!’

Jack: ‘The first thing we found was the caterpillar – it was also the easiet thing to find’.

Kayse: I saw the scariest thing – A dead bee!

Jamaine: ‘We found a dead bee, that’s kind of weird’.

Te Rina: ‘My experience of catching bugs was very hard!’

David: ‘It was soooooo fat, that caterpillar, it could hardly fit in the 3D viewer’.

Waitama: ‘Sumayya screamed on the top of her lungs – My ears were sore’.

Pekarau: ‘I was so good I found three ladybirds’.

Jax: ‘It was fun tricking Mrs Karaka, I asked her to have a look at the  mysterious bug – But it was only the bottom of the 3D viewer.

Daryl: ‘It all started off with a silly scared moment – looking at a caterpillar!

Sacdia: ‘Wow! The caterpillar is turning into a chrysalis’.

Monty: ‘I could feel the fat caterpillar moving around in my hand like honey landing on soft, slice of bread.

Wendy: ‘In a school, searching for insects like we’re in a deep dark forest’.

Mayflower: ‘Today we looked for insects!’

Anialla: ‘Today we get to eat the bugs… I mean find the bugs!’

Sumayya: I let out a shriek, “Ahhhhhh! as if I was a scaredy cat – In fact I am one!’

We have really enjoyed the mini unit on bugs and are currently doing mini projects on a particular insect.

Now use the Alphabet key to name all the insects you can think of…

A for Ant              B for bumblebee…
