Reptiles and Trees

Reptile Folder

We looked at another group of vertebrates that we will talk about this month: reptiles.


Turtles, lizards, snakes and crocodilians are all reptiles. What is it about these animals that make them reptiles? Many reptiles are nocturnal. Reptiles are cold-blooded. Can we remember what that means? All reptiles have lungs and breathe air like you and me. Their skin is covered with dry scales. Most reptiles lay eggs on the ground. As soon as a reptile hatches from its egg, it can take care of itself. They are not like mammal babies, who need a parent to take care of them.

Reptile Lesson

We read, The Alphabet Tree, this week. It is a story that shows how letters come together to make words, and words come together to make sentences. The children could choose to make an alphabet tree at the art table.
