Minibeasts Video

Our third Tilgate Bites topic looked at the tiny creatures who lives their lives in our homes, gardens and parks and all around us: minibeasts! From slimy worms and snails, to the creeping millipedes, stalking spiders and countless insects. How can you tell them apart? What are their lives like? How do they help us and the environment? Find out all about these magnificent miniature animals in the first video lesson. Then try out are minibeast activities, which include a bug hunt where learners can become proper research scientists, games, art projects and other science activities! These can be found on our Home Education Resources page.

Part Two is a self-contained minibeast murder mystery! Can you be a detective and work out who tried to kill Frank the cockroach? Use the evidence and activities to make your deductions and then see if you are right in the Big Reveal video below!
