Hand with an earthworm

Look under a rock

Head out to nature and find a rock to look underneath. Turn it over, being careful not to harm the things that live under it.

  • What can you see? 
  • Worms? 
  • A slug? 
  • Mini beasts? 
  • Are there mini-beasts living there? 

Look closely at the patterns you will find in the dirt. Are there slippery slug trails or worm holes? Take photos with your phone or try to draw what you see.

Don't forget to carefully replace the rock when you are done. Try different types of rocks in different places and at different times of day. You’d be amazed at the difference it can make to the under-rock world!
