30 Nov Upcoming Herpetologists – Grade 000M
We have quite a few upcoming herpetologists (zoologists in the field of reptiles) in Gr 000 after having two pet chameleons visit us. To follow our theme of Reptiles, Mango and Mielie each came to spend a morning with us. The children got to watch them spend their day in their terrarium, feel their cool yet slippery scales, and even watched Mango eat a fly.
Chameleons have very sensitive ears, so this was a great way to get the class to use ‘their inside voices’ – Shhh! This was such an exciting way to end off the theme and to consolidate all the information that they had learned whilst investigating the reptile world. The children thoroughly enjoyed spending their morning with their ‘new friends.’
