Reptiles - a focus on snakes

We had been studying reptiles complete with a visit from the gecko and one week we focused on snakes.  For this we read a book about snakes and showed the children a snake skin.  This was another opportunity to handle something fragile. 
We extended this into the practical life area where we had a snake cutting work.  Here the children can color the snake and then cut around in a circle.
In art we decided to glue a snake mosiac which was quite popular with the children.  Here they used different dried beans and put them in a strip of glue shaped like a snake.
