Our Giant Land Snails


...

Our pre-school rooms have some new and exciting creatures to look after – 2 giant land snails.

Pre-school Blue have named theirs – TURBO.

Pre-school Red have named theirs – OSCAR. 

The children had discussions about names and listened to each other’s suggestions. Then they had a vote to decide which names to give to their snail. These processes are very important for young children to learn as they start to make decisions and to co-operate with each other.   

The children are also learning about how to look after Turbo and Oscar – what they eat and what they need to grow and be healthy.

They are small at the moment but are already growing and this will help the children to learn about growth, bigger/smaller and also how this relates to their growth and development.
