Weka Art T4 2022
October 19, 2022
We have budding entomologists in the Weka classroom who thoroughly enjoyed discovering and exploring the world of Minibeasts.
They loved learning about different minibeasts and classifying organisms into living and non-living things. They found the lifecycle of the frog and butterfly very interesting and were intrigued to learn about the different stages in each lifecycle. They were fascinated to learn how minibeasts can be harmful and useful and enjoyed working in groups to find out which category different minibeasts went in to. Learning about how and why minibeasts camouflage and adapt to their environment was insightful and they created beautiful camouflage critters to represent the term of camouflage.
They were given the opportunity to prepare and present speeches. Their speech was on an exciting trip into the jungle, and they were sharing a new species of insect with the class that no one had ever seen before. We ended off the minibeast topic with a beautiful bug ball.
"I was extremely proud of the effort, excitement and enthusiasm that went into these speeches. They were outstanding and I loved learning all about their findings. Well done Weka’s! I think you are the coolest entomologists in town!" Tamlyn Leal
