    We had SEVERAL classroom pets this past year--our first was a small turtle. He turned out to be way to much trouble for me because the kids couldn't handle him and his water had to be change daily. We traded him in for a hermit crab, but the kids didn't like him cause he did nothing. Finally, my husband ran across dwarf hampsters in a pet store--buy one get one, so he bought them for the class. The kids loved them--especially when we came to school one day to find we had babies!! The kids took full responsibility for the pets--food, water, and changing the bedding. Also, the babies were a WONDERFUL learning experience for them--the changes were amazing.
