This is Spike, my classroom pet! We’ve recently found out that he is a she so we will be changing her name shortly. My 3rd graders LOVE her and have a BLAST feeding her crickets, watching her bask, and work hard to earn the prize of getting to hold her for a bit!
I just got her this past Christmas so we haven’t done summer yet BUT she’s gone home with different students almost every weekend since! I make sure parents know what they are signing up for and committing to and so far it’s worked really well.
They sound like a great way to teach kids how to be responsible pet owners. We do have this comprehensive guide on bearded dragon care. Or feel free to post a question here and we can certainly help you out too!
