50 Things – Making a bug home

Good Morning Jura Class :),

Hope everyone had a good weekend.

Before school stopped we were working on our bug home for 50 Things and I thought it would be fun to continue this at home.

At school we used half a plastic bottle to fill for our bug home but you can use whatever items you have at home. There’s a lot of items that can be found in the garden that the bugs would love for their home.

This is a worksheet you could use or you could use a piece of paper or pictures to record what bugs you have found in your bug home. I cant wait to hear what bugs you have found.

Here is a wonderful video of Mrs Millar making her bug home that you might like to watch.
