Year 4 Find Their Own Waggle
Year 4 Scientists took to the woods to learn about how different species communicate without using verbal/ sound communication. Bees use the Waggle dance to communicate distance and direction of nectar from the colony- up to 6km from the hive and ants use pheromones to accurately leave a trail for the rest of the colony to find – strength in numbers. Children then came up with their own forms of communication in teams to find and compete for their own ‘nectar’.
Check out the Waggle dance in action below.
