Recently the 3rd Graders at Midland Elementary participated in a "Pet Day." They read the story, The Perfect Pet. They learned about a variety of things from basic needs of having a pet, grooming, responsibilities and identifying problems and solutions.
At the end of the week, the students were able to bring their pets to share as a part of their reading unit. The students brought a vast variety of pets, including numerous dogs, some cats, and also a chicken, hedgehog, tortoise, hamsters and a rabbit.
