Product Description

What does "cold-blooded" mean? Do reptiles have voices? Do any reptiles eat plants?

In this illustrated course, the student gets to choose from eight projects where he can study live reptiles (maybe even visit an alligator farm!) He finds out how wild turtles live, which snakes are dangerous, and how legless lizards are different from snakes.

This is a good course for young students to learn how different reptiles like snakes, lizards and turtles are related, and many interesting facts about them.

Materials You Need to Supply: Texts/references: A guide book on reptiles (Golden Guide series published by Golden Books or Peterson's First Guides published by Houghton Mifflin are suggested). An encyclopedia or other references with good colored pictures of chameleons, alligators, crocodiles and dinosaurs (if your guide book doesn't include them). Required materials: Crayons and drawing paper. Optional materials: A turtle terrarium, turtle food and a small turtle of known type and feeding habits. A piece of alligator, crocodile or snakeskin leatherware.
