Investigating Snake Skins

Mrs. Anderson's Fourth Grade Students had the opportunity to investigate four snake skins from the same red boa, Hawk.  The students predicted and measured the length of each skin.  They will use the data to determine the rate at which the snake has grown.  Students took a close look at the skins to see the individual scales and patterns on each skin.  The students measured the longest skin a little over nine feet in length.  As one student commented, Wow!, That's a really long snake!"
