Turramurra - The Reptile Show
The Reptile Show came to Beehive!!
The children eagerly gathered in the Main room and then it was ShowTime. Aaron began the show by asking the children to use their quiet indoor voices so they did not startle the reptiles, he then opened a box and brought out a blue tongue lizard, the children’s eyes lit up as they waited in anticipation for the lizard to come their way. Aaron then moved on to other reptiles and insects including a bearded dragon, 2 non-venomous snakes as well as a turtle, mealworms, cockroaches and even a frog.
The show was lots of fun and the children were absolutely having a ball. Aaron was very informative explaining each characteristic of the reptiles and used humour and funny stories to really get the children involved.
Aaron also invited the children to carefully touch and feel the animals allowing for a very hands on interactive experience. Some children were selected to sit up the front and hold particular animals too.
