Learning About Reptiles - Alice Springs Reptile Center
DS1 told me we HAD to see a crocodile while we were in the Northern Territory because otherwise the trip would be pointless! So, off we went. It was a fantastic opportunity for the boys to see and learn more about reptiles. It inspired many questions and opportunities for discussion as they were able to not only see snakes and lizards but also touch them.
The reptile show was a good introduction to the world of reptiles and the kids were given the opportunity to hold a snake.
It's not a large center so we took our time reading the information provided then finished our morning by visiting what we had all been waiting for - Terry the crocodile.
Following our trip we did some google research about crocodiles and DS1 put together his own book on crocodile facts. It was great that it inspired him to find out more which we did once we got home - just one of the benefits of homeschooling!
