Slug Bug!

Yes, I am being literal here.  Our granddaughter's class is studying slugs and since it is a three-day weekend for them, the slug habitats had to go home so they could be cared for.  She is watching over two--Beethoven III and Rocky--and has to keep the habitat moist using a spray bottle.  She also has to make sure they have food such as lettuce, spinach and strawberries.  I'm not a big fan of slugs but I think it's good that the kids are learning an appreciation for them and getting to know more about them.  And here's an interesting side note--the boys at our granddaughter's table wouldn't pick them up because they were too slimy but she reached right in and handled one so they could get a close look.  And another nice aspect of the project, the kids gathered the slugs in their yards.  Now that's up close and personal.
