Thumbs up Successful program

Well, today i spent the day in the local elementary school giving presentations on corn snakes. It was great! I did 2 presentations to kindergarteners (about 90 kids), one presentation to second graders (55 kids) and one presentation to fifth graders (just over 60 kids). It was great to see their young minds working and taking in the information! By the end of it, I only had one child and one teacher who did not "pet" the snakes. I had an outline for a presentation, but they asked so many questions that I had covered in other areas of the outline that I ad libbed most of the presentations. I think that I enjoyed the day as much as the kids and I hope they invite me back next year. As for the four corns I brought with me, they are resting comfortably after what was for them a very long day. If anyone ever has the chance to go to a school and do something like this, I highly recommend it. Hopefully I influenced some young minds today!
