Mrs. Perryman from Fort Worth TX is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Classroom Pet Makeover

My students need a new environment for our classroom pets. Our rabbit and hamster would love bigger cages to better enjoy their time in the classroom.

My Students

My students are a vibrant, intelligent group of kids who love to explore and create using a variety of mediums. They are most focused when they are out of their seats and directly involved in the learning process. We have a very eclectic classroom that includes a variety of animals. The students love having the responsibility of our classroom pets and have shown so much compassion and empathy for our animals which has greatly improved our classroom community and relationships with people and animals.

My Project

We absolutely love having a variety of pets in the classroom! The students take full responsibility of taking care of the animals including spending time with them over breaks. Our class rabbit, Pepper, would love a bigger cage to spend his days in! His cage is more than five years old and he is quickly outgrowing it! Having a larger cage would make it easier for the students to care for our rabbit and interact with him during class. Please help us reach our goal and help Pepper live an even more comfortable, fulfilling life in our fourth-grade classroom!
