We had a very informative and hands on time at Cornalees today. We were able to share some of what we had already learned about habitats with Peter (the ranger) and he also introduced us to food chains, reading keys and other habitat based facts.
The first thing we did was pond dipping. Look at our super techniques.
Look what we caught!
We used keys to find out what we had caught.
We went for a walk to see some other habitats.
We looked at some pitfall traps.
We tried some other sampling techniques.
