Insects and spiders at school

I was invited to Willowbank Primary school in Auckland to talk to the kids about insects and spiders. The classes were really enthusiastic and had some great questions.

After my presentation we did a fun activity identifying insects in leaf litter. These are the laminated identification sheets that I gave out to each group, but I think I will make a few tweaks for next time (I forgot to add a fly!)

I also discovered some really fantastic resources for educators on the NZ landcare website

Including lots of insect activities based on the NZAC Pare (a M?ori carved door lintel) which I think is really fantastic!
