Our class is thinking of getting a class pet for the year. They will decide which pet they should get based on student suggestions. To make the best suggestion, you should research different animals, propose a good classroom home for it, and design a presentation to convince the class to vote for your idea. If you are convincing, they might even pick your pet!
