We were very lucky today to have Brenda from Green Schools come into our class and undertake a biodiversity workshop with us.
We were placed into six groups. Most of the workshop took place outside. We were taught how to measure the height of a tree using a metre stick, a right angled triangle and a lot of teamwork.
We also carried out a scavenger trail, finding various things in nature. This was a lot of fun and everyone worked very hard.
We also had time to take both rough and smooth bark rubbings.
Brenda picked a tree outside to measure but didn’t tell us why.
When we came back to the classroom, we shared some of our results and findings.
Brenda told us that we could find out the age of the tree from the measurement we took. We divided the measurement by 2.5!!! The tree we picked was 48.8 years old.
Have a look at what we got up to!
