Classroom pet for students with special needs (MR)

The cost of bearded dragon food for this proposal is $309, including shipping and <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.

I teach a MRM (Mild/moderate mental retardation) special education class. In order to enhance my math instruction (counting, measuring, weighing, graphing etc.), I am bringing a pet (a bearded dragon) into my classroom. I have purchased the supplies and pet out of pocket, but am looking for someone to supply us with the food for our classroom pet. Feeding and caring for the bearded dragon in our classroom will enhance the life science curriculum for my students. Counting and feeding mealworms will enhance math skills. Weighing, measuring and tracking the growth of our pet also enhance our math curriculum. The crickets and mealworms that this animal eats can be purchased for the year to be delivered through the mail on a bi-weekly basis. I am requesting food through July. Even one month's supply (one order of each crickets and worms) would be greatly appreciated.
