Hey Mia! I think its great you want to teach your kids about snakes! If you think they could handle it I see nothing wrong with bringing a small snake into the classroom for the student to touch. I'd just make sure the snake and the students stay safe at all times!  Good luck and happy teaching!

Hello! I am teaching a lesson on float/sink for my first grade class. I know that my students don't need to be able to explain why an object floats or sinks but I'm not sure how in depth I need to go. Should I stop at "this floats, this sinks" and show them the objects in a tub of water or should I go farther and try to explain because it is lighter/heavier than water? Thanks All!
