We got this information from Nathan Hill and he is an entomologist. Here is some feedback from him. We changed the changes he suggested us.
Hi Anna, Taryn,Abbie and Aria
Nice one I had a look at the link. The songs are very catchy and the information is correct. It does show pictures of caterpillars after a section on centipedes.
Caterpillars actually only have 6 true legs (they are the larvae of insects) the rest of the leg like structures - proto legs – are not true legs so caterpillars they are still grouped as insects even through it looks like they have more than 10.
I’m not sure what else you want me to provide feedback on. This is a chart I refer to sometimes which shows how invertebrates fit in the classification table. It has a lot of other entomology jargon that 7-8 year olds do not need to know. For example echinoderms can simply be called the starfish group.
I hope that helps. Keep up the great work.
This is the picture he showed us.

Click This link to see our Invertebrate resource. WE have used Thing link for our resource. It has a lot of information. This is the email we sent to Mrs Parks and Mrs Mills. Hi, what day would be good to come in and share our thing link ( Resource about invertebrate ) to your class or a group of children.
For the links just click the picture.
Next week would suit us better - Can we say Afternoon please from .
Thats fine we will see you then.
Hi Mrs Parkes and Mrs Mills
We have thought about the resource and thought after we show them it we might take 4 people out to the bush to find an invertebrate to test it out.
Kind Regards, Abbie, Taryn & Aria

Where I'm up to with WIT e For our WIT we have gotten very far now we are emailing Mrs Parks and Mrs Mills to interview 2 students and to see if they like our ideas. And here is the email. Dear Mrs Parks and Mrs Mills We are making a scratch quiz for our WIT and the target age is Year 3 and 4. Our WIT is to study invertebrates and make a resource to help year 3 and 4 identify invertebrates from the frankley school bush. We would like to talk to 2 people in your class to ask these questions and see what they think and to give us some ideas about a helpful resource. What would be a suitable time and day to talk to 2 of the Te Pihinga students. Questions Do You use technology like computers or laptops much in your class? Would a website or something similar be useful to your class? If not what would you recommend us to use? If so Why do you think we should change? Do you know much about invertebrates ( bugs without a backbone)? Does your class struggle identify bugs or invertebrates ( bugs without a backbone)? Has your class looked into invertebrates yet? Are there any people who are already interested in invertebrates? Kind Regards Abbie O, Taryn J and Aria T
