Blocks, rocks, twigs and mud; we will be getting dirty exploring materials and how we make structures. In addition to thinking about built structures for humans, we will be looking at the structures that birds build to nest in. We will make our own nests out of materials that we find.

 

Week 4 – Seeing the World Around Us

We will use our senses to find evidence of the mammals, birds and insects that are all around us. We will look for tracks and nests and listen for bird calls and buzzing bees. We will explore the idea that it is through their senses that animals and insects come to the spaces we inhabit. By making bird seed logs and setting out water and fruit for butterflies and bees, we will experiment with whether we can make our inhabited spaces attractive to the animals that share our urban space with us.
