Weta observation

Room 5 had a weta in the classroom  for a day. They knew it didn't live in a box, so they went to investigate the bush to see  what the weta might need in the box to recreate its habitat . The children decided to put some soil, leaves and sticks in with the weta.

The students observed that the weta quickly went under the leaves and couldn't be seen. They came to the conclusion that wetas liked cool, damp places to live and hide when people were around.They learnt that the weta was  camouflaged because it was the same colour as the leaves.

Now we're wondering if wetas hide from anything else? We will research  that back in the classroom.
