On Thursday Year Two went to the park and brought back some lovely snails for us to look at. I decided that I would make a snail habitat with both year one and year two so we could keep the snails in the classroom and observe and examine their behaviour.
I learned how to make this snail habitat during my teacher training by my wonderful science lecturer, Paddy Madden. Paddy is a legend in schools around Ireland for making school gardens, woodland habitats and for teaching children (and teachers) the many amazing things they can learn and do involving nature. You can find more information about Paddy here where he has school projects for every month of the year.
