Snails For Kids

Are you a snail? Follow the text as it is read aloud.


Write at least 8 facts about snails in full sentences.

Here are some ways you could use to start your sentences.

See if you can use some of your English skills too. Can you include commas in a list in one of your sentences ? Can you use some conjunctions (joining words) ?

Below there are two snail art ideas to have a go at.

Look at the pictures , the first picture shows paper snails on paper leaves. You need a strip of paper and you curl it to make the snail. You could make a whole family of snails.

The second picture uses a paper plate. If you don't have a paper plate you could draw around a plate on a piece of paper and cut out the circle shape.
