I'm teaching a day camp on turtles this week. Today, my 4-6 year olds got to touch turtles, make their own turtle shells (out of tissue paper and paper plates), and got some turtle clues from old turtle.
While looking up something about turtle anatomy for the class, I stumbled upon this humorous passage. It's not quite appropriate for the age group in my class, so I thought I'd share it with all of you:
It's egg laying season for turtles right now. Turtles leave their ponds to go lay eggs in dirt/rocks/sand, and this often requires crossing roads. Please remember to watch the road as you drive around!
