Butterfly House Visit

By Terry Tarapi | Posted: Tuesday March 21, 2017

Last Friday Room 14 travelled to the Otago Museum to investigate the tropical rainforest.

Excitement filled the air as Room 14 invaded the museum.  It was a wonderful learning opportunity to experience a unique habitat.  We were treated to several memorable events including a release of swarming butterflies, the turtle chomping a butterfly that had fallen into the lily pond and the exploration of discovery world.  The air hockey game certainly took a hammering.  

Emily, the museum education officer, certainly challenged the students to think about key concepts, especially the relationships between organisms and who benefits from this specific relationship.  

A big thank you to all the helpers for your company and we hoped you enjoyed the trip as much as we did.
