Tara, how about an aquarium turned into a terrarium? 10-20 gal size or larger. Terrariums are a little bit of nature in a glass box. I grow lots of them. You can use the grow light for it. Or even a Paludarium which is part terrarium and part aquarium. with a few small fish or a frog or salamander? The kids would love it! You may even get a local pet shop to donate a tank and more when they hear it is for a local school.That's some amount of work @addy1, you definitely deserve Christmas day off with a hot cooked dinner. Last week I was at my youngest school and the teacher asked if I would mind doing a nature project for the class that the kids could benefit from. The classroom has no windows and in my opinion looks pretty dismal, but the best part is a water feature is allowed, it just can't be massive. So I do have a grow light that I used for seedlings that I can use, but if anyone has any ideas they would like to share I'm all ears. The age group of the children is eight, and the idea is to make the classroom more attractive using nature and not mass produced products, and also educate and hopefully inspire a love of nature that the kids will keep in the future. I really do hope some of you who read this will have ideas and share, as I feel this is an important opportunity to teach a tiny portion of our future generation the value of nature. Thanks
