Snails

As part of our garden topic we have been exploring snails. First we went on a snail hunt and captured snails. Then we looked at them closely under magnifying glasses. We looked at lots of facts about them. Their Latin name is a Gastropod which actually means a ” belly footed animal!” We discovered that their eyes are on the end of their tentacles and that their tongue helps them eat and is called a radula.

Today we had snail races but the snails didn’t move very quickly! We put them on perspex sheets and laid underneath so we could see them move. They have a slimy body which creates a rippling movement and pushed them forward.

Then we set them free in the play ground. We all love snails.
