Class Experience

Students will be asked to gather materials that they will need, as well as sketch their ideas for the Insect Hotel so that they have a guide/plan for the second class session when they will be building. 
Students will need to provide their own materials to make their insect hotel. All materials can be found in nature for around the house, there is no need to purchase items. A list below give a general idea of the materials that can be used. Additional ideas will be shared in class as well. Strips of wood Straw Moss Dry leaves Woodchips Old terracotta pots Old roofing tiles Bricks, preferably those with holes through them Old logs Bark Pine cones Sand Soil Hollow bamboo canes Dead hollow stems cut from shrubs and herbaceous plants A sheet of roofing felt Straw/hay String Rocks Toilet paper rolls Whatever else you can find - preferably natural materials or recyclables
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
