|"Wow! We have PETS in our classroom!" ... Animals and pets can be an exciting and educational part of the classroom! "Yeah, we had a snake but it died." ... Yipes! They can also be unhappy dust collectors at the back of the classroom too!|
This site is here to give you some positive input and helpful ideas about animals in the classroom.
Animals are all around us. They are a natural attraction. They are a natural resource. By bringing the animal world into our classrooms, and by bringing our classroom out into the local environment, teachers help play a part in making sure that the animal world is appreciated and preserved rather than feared and destroyed.
This site is also here to give you a chance
to share your classroom experiences with the others "out
there". Success stories, problems, on-going programs, and
questions are all welcome. I'm hoping to hear from you!
