                 HARVEST MICE

 

 

 

THIS TALK IS A COMBINATION OF A 'REAL LIFE' VISIT TO YOUR CLASSROOM BACKED UP BY A 'WORDS & PICTURES' STORYLINE, KINDLY MADE AVAILABLE BY TOP WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER BOB BRINDSURCH.

 

 

YOUR PUPILS WILL GET TO MEET LIVE HARVEST MICE BROUGHT IN AS PART OF A TABLE TOP DISPLAY, A GREAT WAY TO OBSERVE THEIR AMAZING ADAPTATIONS TO LIFE IN THE FIELDS AND HEDGEROWS. THE DISPLAY IS AN OPEN ONE, NOT BEHIND WIRE OR GLASS-SO SUPERB FOR CLOSE OBSERVATION. (ALTHOUGH DUE TO THE TINY SIZE OF HARVEST MICE, WE WON'T BE ABLE TO HANDLE THEM)

 

I WILL TALK TO THE CHILDREN ABOUT THE MICE, THEIR AMAZING AND PRECARIOUS LIVES IN THE WILD AND ABOUT THE ACTUAL MICE ON DISPLAY, THUS LEAVING YOUR PUPILS WITH LOTS OF INFORMATION.

 

THIS VISIT WHEN BACKED UP BY THE ONLINE RESOURCE FROM BOB WILL MAKE FOR A GREAT FRAMEWORK FOR SOME VERY CREATIVE WORK FROM THE CHILDREN!
