L is for Lizard!

L is for L-I-Z-A-R-D! Our pre-school friends embarked on one of their first adventures earlier this August. These young scientists discovered lizards in their school's garden and they made some interesting observations, as they pet and even held these fun reptiles.
"He walks with his legs. The lizard was scared. It looks like sand." -A

 G: He feels so sad. He looked like a lizard. He bites
 "The lizard walks with her feet. He feel like he trembles. He blinked. He moves his tail."-says R.
S's observation: "His tail moves. The lizard feels hard. He was shaped like oval."
