Pond Dipping

Our on-site pond is teeming with life from shrimps to ducks and provides a great opportunity to find out what goes on beneath the surface that we don’t normally see. We will carefully collect specimens for viewing with our electronic microscopes and discuss our finds before releasing the creatures unharmed back into the pond.

This is a great way to learn about the food chain and how delicate it can be if changes occur in a habitat, such as the introduction of a new species or the extinction of an old species. This is always a really enjoyable activity for children and a great way to reinforce the message of respecting nature and the environment.
