|Welcome to K-2 Science Lab|
|REAL lab tables and stools.|
The room was decorated. The equipment was in place.
The lab was only missing one thing-the kids.
Then, it was time for Kate's kindergarten class
to go to the science lab.
When she came home that day she announced,
"We dissected snails today!"
If you are doing dissection you need protective goggles
and magnifing glasses.
|Observing the snails...up close and personal.|
Snails are look like slimy creatures from another planet.
|A shell grows on a snail's back. |
As the snail gets bigger, it adds to its shell.
The shell grows outward in a spiral.
Each kind of snail has its own style and color of shell.
Their bodies are soft and squishy. Their eyes sit up on stalks.
| The kids learned lots of things about snails. |
One thing they learned is that snail slime doesn't smell very good.
