Focus: Slugs and snails


Your Task:

Read the information about slugs and snails.  You could get a grown up to ask you these questions. You do not need to write the answers down.

  1. a) How many tentacles do they have?

b) How many are eyes? What are the other ones used for?

    2) a) Do slugs and snails come out during the day or night?

        b) Why? 

        c) What is the scientific word for this?

    3) How do snails protect themselves?

    4) a) Would grown-ups like slugs or snails near their plants? 

        b) Why not?


Extra challenge

If you want to make your own fact sheet or top trump cards for slugs or snails, then you could draw a labelled picture and write some facts.
