Here are a handful of enjoyable details about snails that your students may possibly discover intriguing:

  • Snails are born with shells.
  • Their two eyes are identified at the tip of their tentacles.
  • Snails move working with one particular muscular foot.
  • A snail’s mouth may possibly be the size of a pin, but it can have up to 20,000 teeth based on the species.
  • When temperatures can get fatally dry, snails can sleep for 3 years,
  • Garden snails are nocturnal. They roam at evening to take benefit of cooler temperatures.

This tutorial is created to hold the standard anatomy of the snail in spot, namely the placement of the eyes and shape of the body, but could encourage students to come with their personal colorful shell. Spiral shapes are enjoyable to section off to make patterns, and with a small bit of shading, can appear quite dimensional also.
