The Great Bug Hunt Is Back!
Dixon-Watmough, Rebecca; Rapley, Martin
Primary Science, n123 p24-26 May 2012
The Association for Science Education's "" and Martin Rapley, presenter of "The Big Bug Experience," are again running the Great Bug Hunt in 2012. Simply identify a habitat, explore and discover the bugs that live there, photograph or draw them and record findings--it's that simple. The winner will be the submission with the most diverse range of bugs and the most innovative and clearly presented findings (e.g. map, drawn images of bugs, tips taken from website, follow-up findings), regardless of how big or small the facilities. In this article, the authors explain how a school can get involved. James Davis, year 6 teacher, explains how Ripple Primary School in Greater London became the 2011 Great Bug Hunt winners and how it has benefited his school. (Contains 3 online resources.)
