Snail Art

This week, we completed our snail art. We used pastels on black paper because snails are nocturnal. Our pictures had to include a snail's shell, foot, tentacles and eyes and as you can see, we have labelled these body parts.

Fantastic art work A4! I love the way you have labelled your pictures just like real scientists. My Preps have just fininshed creating animals in their habitats - I hope you can visit our blog and see them (I haven't posted them yet). What wonderful learning you are doing. What is the most interesting fact you have learnt about snails?

What great snail art! Isn't it funny that it only has one big foot.
Our class is learning about Little Critters this term too.

Your snails look great A4! I was very impressed with how you wrote the labels and stuck them on the snails all by yourselves.

Hi Prep K and Mrs Kennedy
Thank you for your comment. We visited your blog and saw your fantastic art.

The most interesting fact we learnt about snails is that some baby snails hatch out of their eggs and then they turn around and eat the eggshell!

Great pictures I like the colours you used, they look better than real snails.

I loved the video! The pictures and the song go perfect together! You all did such a good job on the pictures! Keep up the good work!
