Southland Academy second graders have been reading the story, "Snakes," from their reading curriculum.  The students have learned a great deal about snakes, and a  few of the snake's characteristics that have proved to be their favorite.  Tate mentioned that snakes rub against rocks to shed their skins.  Camilia said that she learned that some snakeskins show exactly where the eyes were.  Emma remembered that snakes are able to smell through their tongues.  All of the students were excited to see and talk about an actual snakeskin.  While not all of the students "like" snakes, they all have enjoyed reading and learning about snakes.
