Anyone ever taken their snakes to school for a presentation? My daughter's fourth grade teacher has asked if we would bring our snakes in for a "show and tell" after the weather warms up a bit more.

Yes, our County has approved us giving a class to every biology class at the local middle school. I have a lesson plan, but it would be above the 4th grade level.

I would suggest a little bit about ambush predator prey, touch on anatomy like Jacobs organ, etc. not to complicated for that age group. The last 15 minutes of our class is hands on. An adult is with every animal while the kinds touch (after using hand sanitizer).

Thanks, I was thinking of focusing on
- snakes are not evil nasty scary monsters,
- basic husbandry & care,
- leave the wild snakes alone, and
- benefits to the environment.

We've got 4-5 who have been used as diplomats in the past, we'll select the ones that visit the school based on shed cycles and lack of sausage butt.

And yes there will be plenty of hand sanitizer.

I used to take my blue tongue skinks in all the time. It's great for kids to get exposure when they're young so they call learn respect and appreciation for reptiles.
