As part of our scince topic on Living things and their habitats we carried out a simple enquiry to discover the preferred habitat of a woodlouse. In order to do this we divided a tray into 4 sections and discussed what each section could contain. We then explored the school field and collected damp leaves, bark, twigs and of course the woodlice!
To ensure we created a fair test we put the same amount of woodlice in each section and left them over night.
We discovered that their preferred habitat is bark as they had all collected in that section.
