We read a book called ‘Hidden Animals’ which was about animals that camouflage themselves in their environment. As a class we went out to see if we could find any hidden animals in our school grounds. We used magnifying glasses to help us see things more closely. Some of the things we found were:

  •  Lady bugs
  • A baby bird
  • Eggs on leaves
  • Flower petals
  • Objects buried in sand

We may not have found any hidden animals but we certainly did find lots of exciting things and it was great to be able to see them up close and notice details we hadn’t seen before.

Here are some things that we learnt about magnifying glasses:

  • You can see more detail but not all of the detail
  • If you hold it to far away it goes blurry
  • There was a bit at the end that makes things super magnified

In our books we drew our observations and then shared them with our class mates. It was so much fun and we can’t wait to keep exploring different aspects of science throughout the term!
