To finish our Inquiry unit about Bugs, we made some Bug Hotels.We talked about insects needing a safe place to hibernate over winter. They will spend winter sleeping because it's too cold and there isn't enough food for them. By making a home, the beneficial insects like bees and ladybirds, help our environment in the spring.
We used strong cardboard tubes and filled them bamboo, paper, cardboard and sticks and leaves. Bamboo is great because it gives little insects some hide away holes. Rolled up cardboard is cosy for insects too. Everything we used is recyclable and sustainable.
Lastly we taped some together and each group decided together where they wanted to place their Bug Hotel.
