Classrooms aren’t suitable for animals. Some think they help children but others think the pets being stuck in a cage loney, and without any care after school hours is damaging lovable animals lives. It’s clear that overall keeping animals in the classroom is a big no! Most people when they get a classroom pet they just overthink how much fun it will be and not how difficult it will be for themselves and the animal. It is terrible because pets are easily stressed out by loud noises, at health risk and at risk of abuse. I believe Sauk prairie should follow these rules.
One reason why you shouldn’t keep pets in the classroom is that they get easily stressed by loud noises said “The Humane Society of the United States.) The Humane Society of the United States, www.humanesociety.org/. for example if you keep the pets in the classroom for a very long times they get noise anxiety which can develop into other panic disorders. also try to create a safe place for your pet or try to add a “white noise” because obviously your pet is getting stressed and you are going to want to help them and not scare them. we can use classroom pets to help use learn despite we don’t want to scare them from being loud in the process. this evidence is important because now you know how sound can affect your class pet.
another reason why you shouldn’t keep pets in the classroom is that students are at health risk said “Pets in the Classroom – KinderArt, 26 Apr. 2017 , kindart.com/blog/pets-in-the-classroom./ For example many kids have allergies, which can be exacerbated by the presence of certain animals. Also bacteria such as salmonella can be spread By handling of reptiles and frogs. Furthermore rodents such as hamsters can carry transmittable diseases too. This evidence is important because now you know how animals can affect your students or even you.
A third reason why you shouldn’t have a class pet is that they’re at risk of abuse said “Pets in the Classroom – KinderArt, 26 Apr. 2017 , kindart.com/blog/pets-in-the-classroom./ For example, sadly some classroom pets are suffering from unintentional neglect. also PETA has received many reports of awful animal cruelty. for example, pets have been found dead from being beaten, or never given medical attention. This evidence is important because many pets have died from abuse and we are hoping that in the future pets won’t die from abuse but just from old age.
Others May say that pets in the classroom help students learn and help students learn about responsibility but I argue that I don’t don’t think they are living creatures just like you and me and being treated terribly. We should treat them with love and kindness as it for yourself and others. would you like to be poked in annoyed by people trying to learn about you? I hope not. So we should treat them with care!
Pets in the classroom are great for teaching students pet care but when it comes to, they get easily stressed by loud noises, children and the pet are at a health risk and the pet is at risk of abuse, it all adds up to be a big no, to having classroom pets.
