Data Base Activities

Science - Minibeasts



The children can record their observations on the Minibeasts data collection sheet.

Ask them what data they will enter on a data base, giving limited choices.

For example, minibeast habitats could be limited to :

  • under stone,
  • in water,
  • in grass,
  • in the soil.

Each group could enter information into a class database prepared by the teacher.

The results could be presented as graphs, recording the number of wings, how many were found under stones then interpreted.
