"Bugs alive" Reception explore minibeasts 🔎

What fun we've had this week in reception learning more about minibeasts. We have looked at their habitats, built homes for them, got creative drawing ,painting and observing them.

"Minibeast" or "Minibeasts" is a term for a variety of arthropods and other invertebrates, including spiders, ants, ladybirds, butterflies, bees, wasps, flies, woodlice, and many others.

Studying minibeasts is a very effective way to observe many biological concepts first hand, which is not possible with many larger animals. Life cycles, food chains, and bodily structure and function are just some of the basic elements of biological science which can be easily explained using minibeasts.
