    My Pet Pal: Oreo and Onion

    These are Oreo and Onion, my classroom pets.

    Both were abandoned in New London, found by New London Animal Control and adopted by me.

    Oreo and Onion spend their days in the Multilingual Science Classroom at NFA where they are spoiled by 89 students daily.

    Both have been an amazing addition to the classroom as they help students learn about animals, animal adaptations, habitats, and niches in addition on how to care for a pet. This April vacation they skipped school and stayed at home.
