draw a snailLearning about snails in your classroom?

Here’s a simple way to draw one, all starting with the number “6”. I found a wonderful foreign website (pavulurivikram.blogspot.dk) that has lots of drawings based on numbers, and want to give theme credit for this idea. I just added some realistic antennae so the snail would be more true to life.
