Today we travelled by bus to the Whangawehi awa and walked up to the rapids. We were ‘watching and looking’ around the environment to see what we could spot. Some people were helping Matua Arthur with the net to see if we could catch some whitebait. We also found shrimp and cockles. Back at school, we measured the cockles to find out what the prominent size of these was. It was interesting to learn that in comparison to last year, they are smaller. We also used the digital microscope and examined the whitebait closely. It was interesting to compare two different species. Many thanks to Matua Arthur and Whaea Jenni who assisted us with our workshop today and to the whanau that joined us on our walk. Kia ora!
