We watched a few documentaries about ants and weaver ants. We also read non-fiction books about ants. After this our teacher asked us what we could remember or already knew about this social creature.
We then did some research on the Internet to find new facts. We had to remember the new information and share it with the class. We are now ant experts so feel free to ask us any questions you may have.
This term we have been learning about the life cycle of a Monarch butterfly. We made cartoons using Tuxpaint to show the four stages.We made an i-movie to share our learning at assembly. We had three pet caterpillars called Munch, Bunch and Crunch. It was exciting to see the caterpillars change into a chrysalises and emerge as a butterflies. We went to Auckland Museum to be entomologists for a day.
