This week we are exploring habitats. You may have noticed there are far more animals around at this time of year, especially insects.

Can you find the insect in the picture?

Some creatures exist in the harshest of habitats, adapted to survive and thrive where there may be little water, very low or very high temperatures, and may need to find novel ways to survive by slowing their metabolism.

During winter, insects become dormant and need to find somewhere safe to shelter that will protect them from cold and from drying out too.

Try to make your own bug hotel using a range of materials to provide some places for insects to shelter.
