In science today Birch Class – Year 4 went on an invertebrate hunt! First, we thought about what an invertebrate is (an animal without a backbone). Then, we looked at a variety of invertebrates including insects, annelids and crustations and we learnt a bit about their history. Next, we went outside looking in and around a variety of habitats to find some local invertebrates.
When looking for the invertebrates, we used a classification key to find out what each animal was, ticked it off and drew a quick sketch. We found between 5-10 different species in our very own back garden!
