How many of YOU do this? Would you ever try it? Long ago, I observed a 1st or 2nd gr class & their pet rabbit was loose to roam in the classroom. The teacher stated that her purpose for this is to teach kids that the world isn't sterile. I also figured that she wanted to teach that people have to learn to live & learn around life's distractions. It was really interesting to observe since I'd never seen anthing like that before. The kids of course were used to it, so they did their thing as if the rabbit wasn't there. I personally probably wouldn't go this far, but I guess if you have a good group of kids, it can surely be done.
