Week Eleven Synopsis
Reptile week gently re-introduced snakes, turtles, alligators, and crocodiles in a fun, non-threatening way. As it turned out, it became a crafty week as I made a Turtle Toss game, a rattlesnake tail shaker, and a Crocodile Clothespin for Aidyn to play with. We read books about reptiles and viewed online interactive stories such as Clyde's Smile. Aidyn wasn't keen on watching rattlesnake videos, so I decided a trip to the serpentarium would be too much. Regardless, we did go out on a little field trip to a nearby rural barn for local honey. Despite its brevity, we enjoyed this subject and will be sure to visit it again in the future.
