In honor of their study of mollusks, on Thursday, March 14th Mrs. Butler announced her 7th grade Life Science classes by using a conch “shell trumpet”. Conch “shell trumpets” were historically used as part of religious practices and for ceremonial purposes. A conch is the shell of a very large sea snail called a mollusk. These “shell trumpets” can produce a very loud sound!
Maybe you think that snails, clams, mussels, squid, and octopods are very different. 7th grade Life Science students have been studying these organisms and know they are all invertebrates and belong to one of the 3 main groups of mollusks: Gastropods, Bivalves, and Cephalopods.
