Keep a diary during the summer holidays. Describe or draw at least one moment of your day each day – this could be happy, funny, annoying or sad.
Go outside in the fresh air – either to the park, to your garden if you have one, to the beach, or into the woods. For 5 minutes, look up into the sky, into the trees, down to the grass or into the water – make a list of any bugs, animals, birds, fish or plants that you see.
Once you have a list, try and make at least one FOOD CHAIN from these organisms. If you don’t know how to do this, click the button below to watch this video clip.
