What's in the box? It feels....Oooooo, slimy.
Can you think of slimy things on the beach?
The SandyHanders had some brilliant ideas: seaweed, snails and jelly fish, all great slimy ideas.
Did you know you can get land snails and sea snails? If you have a garden, look around the plants and you will probably find some snails. Garden snails love damp places. They eat leaves. Garden snails leave a slimy trail as they move. The SandyHanders made lovely damp beds for their garden snails.
'Sea snails' are called Periwinkles. Periwinkles live on rocks and eat algae using their rough tongues. They don't like dry places, so clumped together in rockpools at low tide.
The SandyHanders made sandy, wet beds for their periwinkles. Periwinkles leave trails in the sand as they move, can you see in the picture below?
The SandyHanders followed a slimy seaweed trail and you'll never guess what they found at the end of the trail...
Golden snails! Wow!

The CoppetKids made boats and rafts with amazing sails.
The CoppetKids joined up rock pools by digging channels and then floated their boats and rafts all the way down to the sea.
Everything was going swimmingly until a pesky seagull thought the boats looked like tasty treats and flew off with one!
Great session CoppetKids. Look forward to seeing you all on Thursday!
