It is spring here in Burnaby B.C. The insects are arriving along with the tulips and cherry blossoms. Our grade 5/6 has just started a unit on Diversity of Life and are looking forward to catching and viewing insects. Today we picked a site for our trap. I originally had no idea it was going to be so large (I guess I didn’t do my research properly!). We are a little concerned that people will destroy it, as our school is in a urban setting surrounded by high-rises and a mall. We hope that it will be ok. We will educate all our students and ask that they let all our neighbours know that we are budding scientists and we need their help! We also just started blogging so we have lots to celebrate. Looking forward to it.
