A fun and simple way to explore an aquatic habitat and observe a diversity of different creatures from leeches to dragonfly nymphs.

Equipped with nets, trays and magnifying glasses, you will have the opportunity to explore our freshwater ponds and discover what creatures inhabit them.  Learn about the wide variety of creatures and their adaptations and how to identify them using simple ID keys.

You will discuss and learn about their characteristics before extending your knowledge by either focussing on habitats or food chains to make links and complete your investigation.

Pond Dipping can be a useful tool in delivering the science primary curriculum section on life process and living things. It can also be used as a stimulus for art, English or Maths activities.
