Over the course of this week, the children have been very interested in a habitat that they had made for bugs that they find outdoors. From roly-polies, ants, beetles and even spiders, the children find them and put them in the habitat! They also used their knowledge of living things and the environment to add elements like rocks, dirt, leaves, and wood chips to make the bugs comfortable in their new home!
