Land Snakes Alive 🐍
I LOVE how much Simone laughed at Eddie as he escaped from the sand!
Jumping out of trees into the water… I even jumped… What a Thrill!
If you were to ask the children, though, what their favorite part of the day was…
… They would say finding the dead snake!
They were in such awe 🐍 at this amazing creature!
It’s not everyday you get to touch, feel, hold, and actually examine a wild snake up close!
I admit that I was a bit scared at first…
Perhaps a bird attacked it and pecked it?
I want to teach my kids to respect snakes and not fear them. Yes, some are vernomous- but I refuse to believe the saying the only good snake is a dead snake!
* A WILD Unschooling opportunity *
We will go to the library tomorrow to look up snakes. The kids had ALL KINDS of questions and the experience will be fresh to help them understand and retain snake knowledge🐍 which means we will be prepared for when we see a live snake in the wild!
(Yes- we used hand sanitizer when we were done learning about the snake)
Andre even found an awesome snake skin!
