We went out to explore our surroundings, to look carefully and closely at different living things, and to take photographs of things we found interesting.

The students were tasked with taking two photographs: a BUG’s Eye View and BIRDS’s Eye View.

BUG’s Eye View

BIRDS’s Eye View

When we returned, the students used the thinking routine ‘I see, I think, I wonder’ to document their observations, thinking and questions.


Next, we used string to look for ‘connections’ between the different living things. Making those connections explicit helped the students talk more about what ‘needs’ the different livings things may have.

 Then, the students documented their ideas and questions on chart paper.

We wonder…

…what more we can learn about the different ecosystems around us?
