Our inquiry group made a terrarium for the Ideas Expo in term 2
eco-system so it becomes a 'Self-managing' or 'No care' garden.
First our inquiry group went on a tikki tour around our Outdoor Classroom at SPS to find little pebbles, stones, bark, small dried twigs and soil.
This is what it looks like when completed
We worked in buddy pairs to make our own terrarium to add to the outdoor classroom.
First we cut a clear empty plastic coke bottle into half and we filled the bottom half with soil.
We planted one plant and some grass to support the plant and added half a cup of water to it.
Each pair took their terrarium and placed it inside our greenhouse to grow.
We had heaps of fun learning how to set up a terrarium and watch how a mini- Water Cycle works within a closed self-managing garden system.
