A new animal

Last week in science Ani had an interesting assignment. She was asked to design a new animal. She had to draw it, describe how it moves and defends itself, and create a 3D model of it. I gave her the option of using the nuudles or pipe cleaners to create her model. She chose to use nuudles.

A new animal

Her animal moves in a slithering motion, kind of rocking back and forth to move. The tail end has a stinger. When a predator comes near it stings to defend itself. The mouth end is on a thin tube with a flower-shaped mouth at the end of the tube. It sucks up food through the mouth. I don’t think it’s a creature I’d want to run into!
