A few of the children in the Butterflies room have developed an interest in our room Lizard, they have been taking it in turns feeding the Lizard and patting it. To extend on the children’s interest and compassion towards the room Lizard we welcomed ‘Wild Life Xposure’ for an incursion.
The children were all so brave when they saw the reptiles. They waited patiently for their turn to touch a variety of reptiles and answered all of the questions that Darren asked.
When it came time to the meet and greet the reptiles, the children walked so slowly and carefully so they did not frighten any of them. The children that wanted to have a turn at holding the reptiles were called forward where they were then asked to describe what the reptiles felt like.
