We enjoyed a visit from Zoo Lab's Tom with his colony of fabulous creepy crawlies. The children came face to face with a tree frog called Trevor, Susan the cockroach, George the corn snake, a giant millipede, Peter the giant African land snail and Lily the tarantula.
The children greeted the guests with curiosity, warmth and enthusiasm. Tom's presentation style made the experience so accessible to our young children. He shared information, allowed children to comment and share ideas as well as ask questions. Children and staff were encouraged to handle the creatures gently or carefully observe them if they prefered. Everyone washed their hands afterwards.
Interesting fact of the week: Trevor the tree frog turns brown when he is unhappy and green when he is happy!
