Classroom Pets

I brought my hermit crabs in this morning - their extended summer vacation was finally at an end. The children are fascinated, and want to learn all about them. So far, I have demonstrated how to hold a hermit crab (to avoid pinching and to keep everyone safe) and we've examined the different parts of the animal. We will continue to learn a lot more about hermit crabs, and will take turns being the caretakers of Hermie and Shy. By the way, these names are new - we decided on them this afternoon. This brought up some interesting conversations about being "fair", the electoral process, majority rules, etc. Quite appropriate at this time of year!
