Some snapshots of another themed choice/work time. This time the theme was: shells.
|Printing in clay with shells.|
|Which animal(s) were born with their shell? Which borrowed theirs?|
|A hermit crab? A fiddler crab? A water snail?|
What is this?
Students hypothesized: "A snake skin?" "A rattle snake skin?" when they heard the shaker sound. "Beads? " Then they dissected the specimen (a whelk egg case) and found tiny shells in each section. Students pasted the shells on paper to keep them to study later on.
|Upon opening the whelk egg case: "Oh it is a cocoon of shells."|
