Under Your Feet
Primary | Environment | Views: 247
A children’s author is writing a book about children who become ant-sized! Can you help her imagine what life would be like?
- Cut a big foot shape out of a piece of card. Keep the cut out foot and the hole that’s left.
- Place the cut out hole on a patch of ground and look carefully at what you find there. Then record what you see by drawing on the cut out foot.
- Include all the plants and animals and anything else you see such as rocks, twigs and spiders’ webs.
- You can place the cut out hole in another place such as a field, a tree trunk or bare soil and record the results on the back of the cut out foot.
Now that you have imagined life in a miniature world, write a story! Or, you could write a letter to the author, reporting about what you found.
