Ahhh! Animals on the loose! A few weeks ago, someone from Science Alive came to our class and brought animals in. Science Alive is a program that comes into schools and teaches kids about animals. Here are the animals that we saw: a chinchilla, a toad, an armadillo, a skunk, and a snake. The chinchilla's tail wasn't very soft, but its body was. If you touched the toad's stomach, it would get hurt because of the oil on your hands, but not on the top. It was very bumpy! The armadillo kept running around and bumping into the scientist, but it was okay, because it had a hard shell to protect itself. The skunk was a cuddly baby. But don't worry, she had her squirt gun removed! The sssslithery sssssnake was the bessst part! It was smooth, dry, and scaly. We got to carry it on our shoulders. It was enormously heavy! It did not kill anyone, though! And that's what it was like when Science Alive came!
