I'm really considering the idea of getting an African Snail for the classroom and obvioulsy relate this to our topic of 'Green Gardens' (Minibeasts and Plants) etc. What do you all think of this idea? I've heard they a lot of eggs so slightly worried about this as I don't want a million of them, lol! The other idea (although I'd like to do both) is use a Butterfly tent and order some caterpillars and grow those to show children the life cycle. What do you think? Anyone done either of these before? I will obviously check with the Head before continuing with any of these plans!
