We have been learning all about Animals in our Science class. Our class decided to wrap up our topic by celebrating Pet Day wherein we were all able to showcase everything we know about pets.
We started our day with our Golden Time wherein we had the opportunity to talk about the pet we brought in.
Those of us who didn’t have pets brought in a picture or stuffed animal of a pet that we would like to have.
Owning a pet is a big responsibility. We realized that it’s almost the same as taking care of our baby brothers and sisters. Like babies, pets need to be loved and cared for as well. We showed each other how we take care of our own pets.
We also got to meet our new class pet turtle. We decided to name him “Cutie”. We promised our teacher that we will make sure to take care of him everyday. This means giving him food, and also changing the water in his house.
One of the activities we enjoyed during Pet Day was the baking activity. Here, we were able to measure ingredients and as well as observe how a simple cookie dough can turn hard and edible just by putting it in an oven.
After mixing all the ingredients we needed for our cookie dough, we put it in the fridge for about an hour. We then rolled the dough and used different cookie cutters related to animals to form fun cookie shapes.
Of course, we can’t just make plain cookies! We had to decorate it as well with coloured sugar icing!
The rest of our day was dedicated to caring and playing with our pets. Having pets is quite a handful! Our teacher told us that playing with pets is important because it keeps them happy. None of us wanted our pets to get sad.
We also taught our friends how to make sure our pets are clean and that they lived in a clean place. This meant having to clean their pee and poo! It wasn’t something we would normally do at home but we realized what an easy task it was after all.
We continued to play and nap with our pets the entire afternoon. They were quite a handful at some point.
Pet Day was so much fun! We wish we can take our pets with us to school everyday!
