Watching Snails!

Age Range: 5 - 11
By: A Visitor

To give children an opportunity to observe small creatures close up, bring a see-through tank of snails into the classroom.

  • The children will be able to see the underside of the snails through the tank.
  • As a group or whole class session you can put the snails onto a piece of black paper and the children will be able to see their trails really clearly.
  • If they will not come out of their shells place them in a shallow dish of water.
  • The children can then do observational drawings and can write words to describe the snails.
