Sábana Sacudida

Use una sábana para explorar la cantidad de vida que puede vivir en un arbusto. Edades 5+, 15+ minutos

¿Qué uso tiene una sábana vieja en un jardín? ¡Es una maravillosa herramienta de exploración para examinar la gran cantidad de vida que puede contener un solo arbusto! Realmente, todo lo que necesita para esta actividad es una sábana que no le importe ensuciar, o una camisa blanca. Salga a un patio o una calle bordeada de arbustos. Busque un arbusto robusto que tenga menos ramas cerca del fondo para que sea más fácil acceder la parte inferior de la planta. Extiende la sábana debajo del arbusto lo más lejos posible. Una vez que un lado de la sábana esté debajo del arbusto tanto como pueda, es el momento de agitar, agitar, agitar. Sujétese las ramas sobre la sábana y agite con entusiasmo, pero no tan fuerte que dañe la planta. Cuando se haya divertido lo suficiente sacudiendo, retire la sábana suavemente desde abajo el arbusto. La sábana debe estar cubierta no solo con hojas, ramitas y trozos de plantas, sino también con pequeños insectos, arañas u otras criaturas muy pequeñas. Es posible que deba arrodíllese para ver la vida silvestre verdaderamente pequeña. ¡Mire de cerca y tenga paciencia! Busque movimiento. ¡Te sorprenderá la cantidad de amiguitos que se escondían en el arbusto!  

También es bueno tener una lupa a mano para observar los insectos de cerca. Yo uso una caja de insectos, que es esencialmente una caja pequeña de plástico transparente con una tapa para meter pequeños insectos en la caja y cerrarla. La tapa tiene una lupa incorporada para que pueda mirar de cerca a su amigo insecto. Luego, simplemente abra la tapa para soltar su criatura. 

Cuando haya terminado de explorar el arbusto, simplemente sacuda la sábana sobre el arbusto para que todos los pequeños amigos puedan regresar a su hogar. Una vez que haya visitado un arbusto, intente la actividad en otro arbusto, ¡y luego en otro! Intente comparar las plantas diferentes como hábitats efectivos. ¿Qué tipo de insectos albergan las diferentes plantas? ¿Los insectos son diferentes en las plantas a la sombra que en las plantas a pleno sol? También pueda dibujar las criaturas que encuentre. ¡Crea tus propios experimentos y diviértete!

Food Factories 🍅🥗😋In this lesson, students find leaves with holes in them and then construct explanations for what might havecaused those holes. They listen to a story book and add further possible explanations for the holes. Thenthey explore the garden to prepare to engage in argument from evidence about which explanation for these holes seems the most plausible. Finally, they relate this concept to plants that humans eat.#NGSGintheGarden #NGSS #gardenbasededucation

Thank you for such a wonderful field trip experience! Your leaders did such a great job at keeping our kids engaged.

Terry had another awesome two weeks at Life Lab. I think he learns more there than in any other part of his year. School is great, but he’s passionate (and often dogmatic) about what he learns there.
