We are very interested in all plants and animals. We love to learn about classifying different living things and the different characteristics of all creatures great and small. We recently went to the local park on hunting for minibeasts. We were armed with our pooters, bug viewers, magnifying glasses and clipboards and we found all kinds of wonderful minibeasts to study!
