The lessons in this issue help to dispel any insecure feelings students have about reptiles and amphibians, referred to collectively as “herps.” This issue includes information on the classification of and distinction between reptiles and amphibians, herps in history and folklore, and the unfortunate exploitation of these creatures by humans.
The lessons encourage students to express their personal feelings of herps. They look at herps in history and art and compare the internal organs of herps to those of humans.
