Last week class 2 were challenged to investigate ‘what habitat do woodlice live in and why?‘ We visited our school wildlife garden and the children investigated different areas and completed a tally chart of how many woodlice they found. Their results showed that they found most woodlice under stones, branches and logs. From this they were able to deduce that woodlice do not like living in the light. They came up with various reasons for this including, being safe from predators by being able to hide under something, being in the dark helps them to be camouflaged and evade predators, woodlice might dry out or burn in sunlight and there are good sources of food for woodlice in these areas such as rotting leaf matter and composted soil.
