Shiny, Slimey, Snails


The children have been learning all about snails, after finding one in the nursery garden. They have watched them in the tank and as they move across the paper, leaving their slimy snail trail behind. They have talked about how to care for the snails, what they like to eat and how to handle them carefully. They have also learned interesting things, using our ‘facts book’, such as how the snail slime helps them to glide along and protects the ‘foot’ from being scratched when they crawl over stones and walls.
