Title Is there a ladybird in the house?
Insects ladybird/s
Description Our class is presently studying the insect life of the school grounds. We have found many ladybirds present (bad aphid infection I think), so this would be a good study given that quarantine will not let us export our own samples to the US. Being able to study insects at the nano-level is something we cannot imagine Our class is mixed, with the gender balance being roughly 50/50. We have 2 students in the class who declare indigenous heritage. This work will be shared at our District Science Forum (40 schools) and through our Education Views newspaper (25000 teachers) with a feature article.
