Last week after our Art Team cleaned out the art room, they found some spare wood and shreaded paper. We thought it would be nice to give the wood to our friends at Botany Downs kindy, and the shreaded paper to their guinea pigs, so we paid a visit to the kindy the very next day. We couldn't see the guinea pigs as one of them was due to have babies within the next few days. Bronwyn told us that if we draw a map of where our class is, when the baby guinea pigs arrive, they will return the visit. Yesterday we were so happy to see Bronwyn with three friends from kindy, as well as Mum guinea pig with her two new babies!! We got to hold Mum guinea pig while she was in her snuggle sack. We learnt what guinea pigs like to eat, and that they are born with fur and with their eyes open!


  1. That sounds so cool Room 19! Did you take any photos?

  2. It is always a pleasure to connect with your class ... and we are so grateful that you think of us at moments like this. The map and the instructions that you wrote down were so helpful to us. I don't know if we could have found your classroom without such a clear map. Thank you. Jayden said that it was 'real fun going to the school'. Jessica said that she liked going to the school to show the baby guinea pigs. Mia said that she like showing the guinea pigs in the snuggle bag. We have found out the both the babies are boys. We weighed the guinea pigs. One weighs 140 grams and the other weighs 130 grams.
    Thanks for these opportunities Room 19
