My grandfather had a small farm. He also worked in a factory.

And so a few days later, after lots of busy work at the factory, my grandpa made his way to the field. The weather was cold but clear, and the moon was glowing(发光). He worked through the night to keep his word.

“To raise snails(蜗牛) well, you need to spray(喷) water to the container(容器) every morning and evening, change soil every two weeks, and feed them with vegetables and sweet fruits,” said Sun Youxiang after raising snails for one year. He is a fourth grade primary school student in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province. From three white jade snails at the very beginning to more than sixty snails of four generations now, he has done a great job for his science class.
Watching the reproduction( 繁 殖 ) of animals is an uncommon experience for kids. Their creativity, patience and respect for life will be developed as they learn to take care of animals on their own.
