    {DI hope this is the right place to post this, but our classroom invert zoo website is FINALLY up and running! I am working on putting up the pics the kiddos took of our current livestock, so bare with me, but it should be up and viewable now. :eek:) Please sign our guest book, become a member, and help spread the work that inverts are being studied and cared for (loved by most of our students) down in Canutillo, Texas! Thank you for the time and continued suport of our Entomology program!

    hey thats great LOL! i wanna see pics and my little rosie agian :) take good care of her!
     
  3. Good for you! Sharing creatures with the youngsters always reminds me of the excitement I had when I first got into the hobby.
     
  4. Great initiative! Many youngsters just see spiders as scary creatures that need to be killed, its good to make them understand the wonders of nature :clap:
    I visit my children's school also to teach them about arachnids and scorpions. Keep up the good work!

    Very cool! I applaud your efforts to teach children that invertebrates are fascinating rather than "icky." Way to go! Keep up the good work.

    nice! saw on your website you had a wolf, and were wondering the ID? if you haven't figured it out already, it's most likely a Hogna carolinensis. they are amazing, the kids will prob love that one! very cool. wish my teachers would have done this...

    +100...The coolest class pet I had was a blue crayfish in 3rd grade. He was okay, but tarantulas would have been better.
     
  9. Awesome. They are so beautiful...wish we had them in my high school! :)

    You have an OBT in a high school classroom? :eek:
    I went to an unusually tasteful HS and I wouldn't trust my peers around one of those... good luck/congratulations.
     
  11. The site looks great! I love the combined benefit of this. Apart from having great teaching aids and educating the kids, you're educating the public and giving the kids the tools to do so as well. Even the website is an ongoing project itself. Very very cool. Nice job!
