Who knew that having a class pet could be so much fun?! We have been learning about the needs of animals in our science class. So, we know that Mo, our class guinea pig, needs air, water, food, and shelter. My class has been very responsible with him, making sure that he has plenty of water in his bottle, a clean cage to sleep and play in, and tons of food to keep his fat belly full. His favorite snacks are Timothy Hay and carrots. Believe me, he never goes hungry! We have enjoyed hearing him chatter at times and petting him in the afternoon. He wasn't too excited about moving around in the giant ball though and he completely walked out of the little leash. How in the world will Mo get his exercise? Any suggestions? Our furry friend keeps us constantly entertained. Sometimes he is just mesmerizing and we can't keep our eyes off of him! We have loved having him as a pet. Have you ever had a great pet?
