Self-guided program

Students explore the Birds and Insects exhibition and discover the characteristics that birds and invertebrates use to find and capture their prey or to prevent their capture by predators. The program provides an opportunity for students to work in small groups to solve clues. They then come together as a class to complete a jigsaw puzzle to reveal a mystery predator.
