These "pets" as windows to the world are an opportunity for students to explore the world with fresh eyes and to become close observers. By seeing things thorough the "pet's" eyes, it also helps students to view things with another's perspective. Students can document the "pet's" adventures through blog, journals, instagram, etc... A map of where this pet has traveled can also be kept.
Meet my original class pet... Randy the Rubber Chicken who in various forms traveled to every continent on the globe and almost made it to space!!!
