The kindergarten incursions program starts with a short interactive talk with the children about waterbugs. This talk looks at the different habitats in the creek and some ways that waterbugs are adapted to survive.
We then move into the activities! These include waterbug picking, build-a-creek scene, preserved specimens, puzzles, books and drawing.
Our kindergarten workshops always conclude with a short story about taking responsibility for our rubbish to preserve our waterways.
