Pond Dipping

Equipped with nets, trays and magnifying glasses, pupils have the opportunity to explore and learn about the creatures inhabiting a freshwater pond. Sweeping their nets through the water from the safety of the bank, young people can discover the delights they have scooped up, identifying them against the ID key provided. Our Instructors encourage children to discuss and learn about the creatures found and their habitat and characteristics. Students will learn about creatures such as water boatmen, tadpoles and pond skaters. This session can be tailored to the particular educational requirements of teachers.
