On Tuesday Johnny and his team brought down a King Baboon Tarantula, weta, some moths and butterflies. We discussed the differences and similarities between the different creatures. Lots of fascinating information and new vocabulary for the kids to hopefully absorb.I was really pleased with the contributions the kids gave to the discussion as I had sent home some holiday homework about insects and trees at the end of term one.
Next Tuesday Johnny and his team will bring down some entomology equipment and more weird and wonderful creatures so the kids, Matua Hone and I can be entomologists for an afternoon.
It's really cool how the museum people can come out to us and bring along displays and equipment.
It is a wonderful taonga in our local area.
