18 Nov KS2: Mission Invertebrates
The Royal Parks’ Mission: Invertebrate project led a brilliant interactive workshop with KS2 pupils this morning to explore why invertebrates are the city’s most important inhabitants, on which all other wildlife relies.
The children heard all about:
- Hidden habitats across London’s parks
- The insects and other tiny creatures living all around us and how we classify these invertebrates
- The important jobs invertebrates do for us – and how all other wildlife we see relies on them
- The increasing threats faced by invertebrates today
All of the children have made a clay ‘seed ball’ to cultivate at home and heard about changes they can make to help create habitats for more invertebrates to survive.
