Ecosystems Field Trips

We had a great afternoon out exploring different local ecosystems for our Inquiry topic this term. Korimako split into three and visited the Travis Wetlands, Bottlelake Forest and Styx Mill Reserve. The sessions were run by Christchurch City Council Education Facilitators who were full of knowledge and have built on what we have already learnt so far.  

Some highlights were:
- Bugging (like fishing but catching bugs from the water)
- Bird Watching
- Eating huhu grubs, YUM!!!
- Building bivouacs 
- Playing a game about pollution.

It was fantastic to do some learning out in nature and so close to school!!! We are very lucky to live in such a beautiful place.
