Hello! I think a bunny rabbit or hamster can be a great class pet. The science teacher of my field school has about 15 animals in her classroom. She lets the bunny around the classroom during the day. The kids love the bunny and it is great exposure for kids!

Mon, Mar 21, 2016 4:15 PM Review of Weather Collection
Ivette, I love your collection. I feel like all of the resources you included in this collection really touch upon the different aspects of weather. I think that the Ocean's Effect on Weather SciPack really goes into detail about all the different aspects of weather. From density, to hurricanes, to the water cycle. I liked the wacky weather article was really interesting. I like how it integrates science with all the parts of weather. I also really enjoyed the weather detectives article. I feel like it is a very fun and engaging way to get students to learn new concepts about weather. I think you did a great job in preparing a a collection that really speaks about the different topics and concepts about weather. I think this will be a great learning tool for students and teachers.

I feel that this collection on ecosystems is very interesting and resourceful. It provides many resources where one can read about different ecosystems. It has two resources about coral reefs which are my favorite types of ecosystems. It also contains resources that explain in detail what an ecosystem is and the different components of an ecosystem. It also has a resource that gives teachers tips on ways to teach students about ecosystems. I really enjoyed reading through this collection!
