Another occasion the students wrote about things an animal needs. They had to draw a picture of their animal and then on the other side of the paper draw what your animal needs to live.
One day we discussed the different types of animal coverings an animal could have. We made a tree map to show the different types of coverings. Each student had the opportunity to draw their own animal and then put it under the correct animal covering.
A teacher on my team has a bearded dragon as a pet. She brought her pet to our school and talked to the students about what her pet needs to live and why. Then she let all of the students come and pet her bearded dragon.

Friday we had Pet Day! Students could bring their pet to school under certain guidelines. We had a great turn out of students and their parents who brought their pets. We had a lot of dogs, cats, birds, hermit crabs, and we even had a student bring a sugar glider.
