Tortoises Can Add, Can You?

Tortoises Can Add, Can You?


Did you know that tortoises smell with their throat? And their shells are touch sensitive, so if you pet one, it can feel your caress. And the Soviet Union’s ond 5 spacecraft, which was the first to circle the moon and return safely to Earth, had tortoises on it! So, tortoises are smart, live a long time (over 100 years), and they are friendly. With all those positive traits, it is a foregone conclusion that they can probably add and subtract as well. So, come out of your shell and join us as we learn some tort-ally wonderful math together!
