Last Friday (January 23), Mommy took us to her school to teach the little ones about Turtles 🙂
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 😉
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 🙂
You can see how those little kids were all so excited to touch us 🙂
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 🙂
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 🙂
