Kids nowadays are distracted. Their screens, the latest internet memes and a thousand other things are vying for their attention. If there’s one thing that's losing this fight for focus, it’s their learning. Fortunately, there’s something you can bring into the classroom to help - a classroom pet!
At Josh’s Frogs, we’ve used animals for educational purposes since 2004. We’ve volunteered for hundreds of classroom presentations and outreaches, and we've partnered with teachers to bring a bit of nature into their schools. To that end, we’ve created kits to help educators keep animals in their classroom. We offer Classroom Pet Kits for both frogs and geckos. Each Kit contains everything you need to set up and care for the specified animal. Plus, you can pair each with a feeder bundle on a subscription program to keep your pets fed. These kits are focused on 3 easy-to-keep species: Crested Geckos, White’s Tree Frogs, and Dart Frogs.
There are many different ways to incorporate a classroom pet into your lesson plans, depending on the subject you’re teaching. I’ve listed some ideas below to get your creative juices flowing. If you have any ideas (or even lesson plans for these species that you want to share with other teachers), please reach out to us!
