Virtual Animal Tales: Snails
June 1 - June 5Free
Normally our park naturalists come to your local library each month to share a story about a native animal and a related craft or activity with preschool through upper elementary age children. This program is FREE to attend.
Today we are offering this program online since no local libraries are offering in-person programming right now, and anyone can join in! These resources are available at any time since this is not a live program.
Click here and you will find a video where Assistant Naturalist Joe Lembo gives a brief talk about snails and demonstrates the craft. You can also find the craft templates. Share a picture of your craft!
Be sure to check out the links about snails and other related information.
We were going to read this book in-person: Snail Trail by Ruth Brown. You are welcome to read this book at the McCloud Nature Center. Other similar books may be suggested, too, with information on how to access these online through your local library.
Summary of Snail Trail:
Join Slimy Snail on an adventure that takes him around the backyard and brings him face-to-face with all sorts of obstacles: up a hill (very steep!), over a bridge (very high!), and down a slope (very slippery!). Here’s a snail’s-eye view of the backyard and a picture story that introduces the youngest readers to simple directional concepts – and ends with a clever visual surprise!
