When I was little someone brought in a whole tray of various CPs for show & tell... Sun Dews, Venus Flytraps, Pitcher Plants... myself and my classmates were delighted... that was probably no later than 2nd grade, LOL. I think it was 1st or Kindergarten though.
My fiancee is a NYC school teacher, elementary school... She's been watching my growing interest in my Dionaea seedlings with curiosity... She mentioned the possibility of incorporating one of my planters into a lesson later this year, but we'll see...
(Shouldn't be a problem... Two years ago, when I was a grad student in Neurobio, I brought in a whole bunch of Drosophila (fruit fly) larvae at different developmental stages to show her students... That seemed to work well too...)
Excellent idea to incorporate your seedlings into a lesson plan her elementary school students. Children of all ages get a big kick out of "bug biters". Please do share your seedlings with your future wife.
