Teachable moments..... Are those times when learning presents itself to us.
Yesterday 'Bob' the blue tongue lizard decided to share some of our fruit at fruit time. It just so happens that we have been talking about reptiles. With a bit of swift maneuvering we were able to gently put Bob in a container where he/she could be viewed and then released away from the busy areas at school. The children were fascinated by Bobs dry scales.
Bob had some apple, left a calling card ( much to the children's horror) and then went to the bush.
We also discussed the fact that snakes are waking up after winter and that we should be careful.
