"Pirate snail" gym

We have a tank of garden snails as pets in our school.

A couple of weeks ago, we made a new gym for the snails to play on while we clean their tank. We used a box, some chopsticks, string, and a little masking tape.

The children said the gym looks like a snail pirate ship...the snails are pirates!

We have had the tank of snails for nearly three years, and the children absolutely LOVE them!

I enjoy watching the snails too.

We enjoy seeing the amount of food they can eat. (They chew quite the holes in the vegetables)

We are intrigued by their waste (remember...we are preschoolers...see book Everyone Poops).

We absolutely LOVE watching the snails climb!
