The snapping crocodile is a cardboard moving toy, which makes use of the scissors arm mechanism. It has the face of a crocodile but can be changed into a dinosaur or any other animal. With the help of the scissors arms, the child can make the crocodile’s mouth open and close, snap, pinch, and grasp light objects. It allows children to analyse the mechanism and use it as a toy. With this activity, children will be introduced to physics and mechanisms, mathematical concepts within the construction and assembly process, and biology concepts about the animal and its environment.
