Live Minibeasts for your Classroom

Are you interested in setting up a minibeast enclosure in your classroom? Live minibeasts make a great addition to any classroom and are easy to maintain. This is a great way to bring nature into the classroom. You can use these animals to teach about adaptations, life cycles and habitats.

These are some species that are fun and easy to look after.

  • Spiny Leaf Insects
  • Children’s Stick Insects
  • Goliath Stick Insects
  • Crown Stick Insects
  • Australia Leaf Insects
  • Giant Burrowing Cockroaches
  • Garden Snails
  • Silk Worms

Some species will happily live in the same enclosure given the correct conditions. Make sure you always keep predators like praying mantis and spiders in separate enclosures.
