Today our grade fours set up the trap at the front of the school. We set it in front of our garden so that the bugs still had a flyway across and into it. We’re excited. Many of our co-participants have such varied landscapes ~ fields, ponds, etc. It will be so interesting to compare the results! Many thanks to Evergreen for sharing their creative barcoding art activity. What a great way to bring the DNA concepts to one’s initial learning of it!
We are also very excited about our first experience with the BIO Malaise Trap Program. Our grade four class intends to set up our trap in the butterfly garden at the front of the school. What an amazing opportunity to learn how real world science works to inform us about the world around us! We look forward to sharing how the experience unfolds for us.
