Nocturnal Animals Experiment..,

We were all very excited in 2ES this afternoon when we retrieved the experiment that we set up outside of Friday. 

In an attempt to find out what (if any) nocturnal animals come into our school grounds during the night, we set up an investigation. We used leaves to carefully camouflage a plastic tube outside and placed two pallets of red paint on either side. We decided to place some bread inside the tube to attract animals. 

When we retrieved the equipment this afternoon, we were very excited to find two sets of footprints. We know that these are from two different animals as they are very different in size. 
We used the internet to find out which animals these footprints belong to and we think our trap was visited by a rat/mouse and a hedgehog. 



What an exciting investigation this was!
