Due to all the recent activities surrounding our move and preparing to sell our home, I recently had a missed opportunity for a good homeschool science lesson. Two weeks ago while clearing and leveling some of the yard in preparation for laying sod, I dug up what appeared to be some snake eggs. There were 6 white soft shelled eggs about an inch long buried about 4-5 inches in the dirt. I accidently busted one open with the shovel when I uncovered them. Inside was what looked to be a worm about 2-3 inches in length. I don't think worms lay eggs, so I assumed it was a snake.

About all I had time to do was to show my sons and then buried them back. If we were not moving and had more time, I thought it would have been great to pickup a cheap small aquarium to put them in. Then my sons and I could research about them and how long they take to hatch. Then we could watch the process unfold. That would have been pretty cool I think.

Oh well, maybe next time...
