Last Friday (January 23), Mommy took us to her school to teach the little ones about Turtles πŸ™‚

Mommy teaches junior and senior high school, but her school starts from pre-k till high school. One of the Kindergarten teachers asked Mommy to share about us. She immediately agreed…well, she always likes to brag about us πŸ˜‰

The class was K-2 (Kindergarten level 2…or something like that). She prepared a simple presentation.


Most of the students paid attention to her but some were distracted by us, they kept looking at us. Their teachers always reminded them to pay attention to Mommy’s explanation about three different turtles.


Then, Mommy explained the differences between us. She mostly explained how Kurome can’t swim well because his hands have no web while Papoe can swim well because he has webbed hands.

Then, the little students were asked to give Mommy questions. No one was eager to ask anything until the teachers announced that anyone who could come up with a question got a chance to feed us or touch us. Everyone started raising their hands eagerly.

There were too much pictures, Mommy and I love them all so we decided to share them all to you πŸ™‚

You can see how those little kids were all so excited to touch us πŸ™‚

Before we reached home (which is on the third floor of her school), her students (grade 8) stopped her and they all wanted to play with us too.

Mommy was a bit concern about us, she was afraid that we might become stress with all those little hands touching us, fortunately that didn’t happen! We went home feeling happy πŸ™‚

Mommy put Kurome and Papoe in a small container so that everyone wold be safe on the way to the class and back home.

It was such a small place…she immediately moved them to their proper tanks.

It was a great day. We like being teachers to those curious little kids πŸ™‚

    It’s good that you got a chance to show the kids what turtles are like with your little group. When they grow up, kids will be much more likely to want to conserve them when they know more about them.

    • Novroz says:

      I sure hope so. a lot of people think that turtles aren’t cute so I hope those kids will grow up thinking they deserve as much attention as other animals

    Wow… such an exciting day! So many pictures and oodles of wonderful memories. I can really see how excited all the children were to meet you and how proud Mommy is of all her babies! πŸ˜‰

    I can tell that all the kids will never forget you and what special animals turtles can be! Maybe now they will want to share their life with one too.

    • Kroten says:

      She is the kind who is easily proud of us for every small things we did πŸ˜‰

      Hopefully they will adopt one of our kinds and love it forever πŸ™‚

    Leave it to a teacher to have a full lesson planned out. πŸ™‚ Looks like fun.
