Invertebrate collecting within leaf litter or behind bark on trees within your local forest or your school's own trees is an easy, fun outdoor activity for your class to do to fulfill a range of curriculum outcomes, particularly in science relating to LivingThings, Environment, Classification, Ecosystems, Biodiversity and Living On Earth.


Some good examples of free online resources to help identify your insects, accessed using a class set of ipads or as print outs can be accessed here:

Happy exploring!
