The Life Cycle of a Snake Activity describes this vertebrate’s life cycle. The female reptile, lays eggs, in a nest of decomposing leaves and twigs. The decomposing matter keeps the eggs warm, as they incubate. Between 60 and 85 days, hatchlings are borne.
This unique material takes the Child from the verbal story; developing the sensorial (concrete) understanding of the material with the objects (sold separately); to the abstract, with the incorporation of images and labels. Colour-coded material, coded according to the Montessori Animal Kingdom. The snakes are vertebrates, and coded brown.
