We returned to Muddisdale to finish a few activities we didn't have time for last week.
We looked at the biodiversity of the trees and plants and minibeasts. We found that the best place for large numbers and different types of minibeasts was in the leaf litter.
The place with the least biodiversity of plants and animals was the grass.
We found a place that was full of wildflowers and different plants and decided that it had been too wet to make into a field so had been left wild. Muddisdale woods was planted in a field and the grass and clover that the farmer had sown on the field was still going strong!
The grass is mown too which helps it look green and tidy, but we found most biodiversity in plants and animals in the long grass.
We also found a good example of slime mould - it could be 'dog's vomit' or it might be the species discovered by Glaitness pupils which we named 'troll snot'.
Can you spot it in the collage above?
We are pleased with our journey sticks and willow weaving - they will remind us of the plants we saw on our trip today.
In the afternoon we visited the LIDL bus to make healthy smoothies which were delicious too.
We measured our heart rates before and after some exercises and games and found out how much harder our hearts work when we exercise.
