This is for the Early Years class, which has been immersed in snails.
Snails in the Early Years Aquarium

text from the web page:
"Josef und Silvia Beeler have an unusual occupation. They breed snails on their organic farm in Steinen, central Switzerland. The molluscs could soon help the Beelers make their fortune, as they're about to be offered as delicacies in upmarket restaurants. (SF/swissinfo)"

Snails appear in this BBC Nature video - but remember, it is a time-lapse film. That means we are seeing things move much faster than they really do.

"Spectacular slow motion and time lapse photography take us into the heart of the forest as the sun brings to life an array of plants and wildlife. Amazing natural history clip from the BBC's Shadows of the Sun.
