April is Slimy and Scaly in the Science Lab

April is Reptile/Amphibian month in the science lab.

This year we celebrated and studied our very own South Carolina
reptiles and amphibians.

Students learned about the Spotted Salamander, our
state amphibian.

And the Loggerhead Sea Turtle, our state reptile.

They visited the bullfrogs.

I love to see girls playing with frogs!

Our friend the Barred Salamander made his yearly
guest appearance.  :)

Hopefully with a little education we saved a few
snakes from being killed by uneducated humans.
