Students learn about reptiles shedding their skin

New School Montessori preprimary students have been studying snakes and lizards. Fascinated by the way these animals shed their skin, students have enjoyed taking part in a molting work of their own.
First, students paint a thin layer of glue on a small patch of skin and feel the tightening as it dries. They then peel themselves free as they experience their own version of what it might be like to shed their skin.
