Gary the Giant African Snail visited . . .

As part of our learning about living things we met Gary, the Giant African snail.

We observed and touched Gary. It evoked lots of conversation about his shell and his foot. We learnt that Gary has tentacles and uses them to feel, helping him to move. We fed Gary and ensured he had water to drink.

“His shell is hard and that bit soft.”


“The shell is swirly, around.”

“He’s eating lettuce.”

“Where’s his mouth?”

“He’s moving . . . slowly.”
