The kids were to be involved in 4 different activities which were woodland habitat, grassland habit, aquatic habitat and nature walk in the forest.
GRASSLAND HABITAT STUDY
The habitat study was conducted in 2 days where the kids were asked to describe the grassland habitat then fill them on their booklet. They were to find out how many organism were there in a particular place by using a mathematical way to estimate the number of organism which are the lippie plant. They would need 10meters length rope, a quadrat, a notebook, and a pencil to record the no of lippie plant found in the measured area.
Another activity that was conducted in the grassland habitat was that the kids were to use sweep net to catch invertebrate into the sweep net then record the no. and the type of invertebrate in there booklet.
THE AQUATIC HABITAT STUDY
The kids visited the aquatic habitat and were introduced by Mr. Nicholas Akach who was their guide. During the 2 days visit one group were lucky to find a water scorpion which other groups did not find. Another group was also lucky to find 26 Cray fish which was a surprise to everyone including as the tour guides .After catching the organism using their fish nets, the kids had to empty them on a plastic water tank and tally them and record in there booklet.
THE WOODLAND HABITAT STUDY
The woodland habitat sampling the kids were expected to survey invertebrate in trees and bushes using a beating methods which involved the shaking or beating of branches to dislodge the insects, which fell onto a white cloth that was placed at the base of tree and shrubs.
After that the kids were to fill their booklet with the name and the no. of invertebrate found and tally.
