What To Do: Lay the sheet on ground under over-hanging vegetation. Shake the vegetation or gently “beat it” with a stick. Many small invertebrates will fall into the sheet where they can be easily observed. Make observations of how things move. Do they hop, crawl or fly? How many different kinds of animal to do you see? How many different colors, legs, antennae, wings can be seen on the sheet? Compare the different animals. When you are done, gently shake the sheet so the animals can return to their homes.
