We have kicked off our Beast Creator topic by holding a quadrat survey in our grounds.
The class were divided into groups of four or five and given a metre stick and four cones to plot out their quadrat. They each then had an iPad to take a photo of the quadrat and upload it to Explain Everything. They then marked off every creature they found in the exact location they found it using our mini-beast identification key.
Tomorrow we will making tally charts, producing graphs and then tying to think about the reasons as to why the insects were found in the quadrats.
