We watched a video today on the computer to see what else we could learn about garter snakes.
We found it extremely interesting how garter snakes use their scales to grip the ground and then use their muscles to move. The kiddoes had a discussion about which they thought would be more difficult to do, walk or slither in order to get from one place to another. We couldn't figure out an answer so we experimented with both!
We definitely had a new appreciation for how snakes move once we learned how hard it was to slither on the ground!!!! We finished the day by adding our new information to our Garter Snake Research book!!
