Snail Science

SNAILS….. Collect live snails that have not been treated with snail bait in any way…..Put the snails on your science table in a large see through bowl with rocks, shells, and greenery. Observe….. Next day…..Keep the container there with the magnifying glasses…but place butcher block paper under the container and cover the table…..Children can eye dropper a drop of food colored water onto the paper and place a snail on top of the drop…stand back and watch the snail make a trail. It’s also fun to pretend that 3 or 4 snails are having a race on the paper. Put the paper up on the board and label it The Snails Did This!
