An exciting competition for primary school children that takes you outside to explore the bug world!
Run every year since 2015 by the ASE in partnership with the Royal Entomological Society, the ever popular Great Bug Hunt competition was created to take science learning out of the Primary classroom and bring it to life in the outdoors.
Our challenge is pretty simple – show us what you can find!
Firstly identify a local habitat – and this could the playing fields, local woods or the school grounds, equip your class with magnifying glasses (if you have them) and notepads or printable sheets and point them at the nearest hedge, flower bed, tree, grass, log, stone, rock (well, you get the picture!)... and let them explore and report back what they find.
Your entries might be a wall poster, a report, a video or even a podcast or poem! Let their imaginations run wild! Closing date June 10. Details here.
