This week we will be investigating what happens when we cover up a microhabitat.
If you have access to a garden, start by finding a small patch of grass. Identify what living things you can see. What plants are growing? Can you find any minibeasts? What do you think will happen when you cover the area up? Will the plants continue to grow? Tell your adult why/why not.
Cover the area up and leave for a week. In a week return and see what has happened. Have the plants survived?
