    Animals in the classroom are an effective teaching tool because they are able to engage students, teach them about responsibility, and encourage them to care for their environment.

    Find a way to get children interested in animals, one thing that worked for us was an animal-themed field trip, try something similar to generate interest.

    Animals are a great addition to classroom learning and responsibility. It is fun and educational. My classroom recently had tadpoles and caterpillars. We plan to do that again this spring and possibly add a fish tank! They are great topic starters and fun for the kids to watch.

    It’s been shown that animals can offer teachers new and unique ways to approach their lessons. They add another option for teachers to create interactive learning opportunities for kids. And overall, having an animal in a learning environment can help inspire and motivate students in their learning.

    I do think that animals are an effective teaching tool because they teach kids to pay attention and to be caring. My tip would be to bring a pet that will help kids learn to be compassionate, caring, and create interest in kids to learn more about the natural world.

    I think for me, the idea of a fish tank seems calming but fun to watch. I think the ones in Dr. offices are amazing and ingenious before children/adults go in to see the doctor.

    I feel very strongly that animals is the classroom are very effective. This has created years of so much learning with my children I care for. The math, fine Botox, science, and how to be responsible. I have children daily in the am schedule care for the animals after they are fed. I will never not have pets in my daycare.

    Animals in the classroom can help children learn from a different perspective when it comes to other living things and developing compassion while taking care of them

    I think animals are a very effective teaching tool in the classroom. One it is a positive experience that would bring joy to everyone. Two it would encourage story telling about pets the children have or want. Three what a great way to get a science and art lesson from having the animals in the classroom. And it is a wonderful way to teach responsibilities and team work with a class pet.

    Children love animals. Using animals in the classroom is a great tool to teaching them how to care for animals and learn about them.

    Animals have a way of making kids and adults a comforting feeling when sometimes they don’t feel like going to a person!! Animals a great way to talk or get out emotions without feeling judged. Animals typically make people happy

    Animals are an amazing topic for the kids . most of them have read books or watch videos about them. they smile while being educated with the animals they have known facts about for the years they have watched and study about them . Letting them act like a animal care taker at school show how much they love and care for the animals
