Exploring the Waimahanga Stream
Last Thursday Room 15 walked from school to the Waimahanga Stream. When we arrived we had to cross the stream carefully. We then took the temperature of the water and compared this to the temperature at Dragon Fly springs. We learnt that the temperature of a stream can change a lot within a short space of time. We then used the nets to try and catch fish from the stream so we could identify what species of fish live there. We also climbed down in to the stream to look under rocks, searching for things living under them. It was a great adventure! Now we will be able to compare the wetlands to the stream.
