Our Giant African Snails...
Today the children have been looking after and learning about the nursery Giant African Snails. The children were able to look at the snails and explore the texture of them, the children described the snails as “Cold”, “Hard”, “Slimy”. The member of staff within the room spoke to the children about where the snails live when they sleep, what they have to eat, how they have to be looked after and asked about the textures of them whether this was the shell or their body.
The children then had an opportunity to help cut up the strawberries for the snails to have some lunch, their really enjoyed their strawberries, the snails were then put back into their tank within the Pre School room.
