Lol wow there is someone out there like me, crazy.In high school i did the same thing i went to my old elemtry school to teach kids about animals (mainly reptiles). They were a big hit and other schools asked me to do the same thing, course leaving school for a day was a reward in itself.

Some advice, watch feeding scheduals, there is nothing worse then a 1st grader getting pooped on my a plated lizard.

Second, hand sanitizer and loads of it, little kids and adult alike will not wash their hands even if you tell them to. Although i doubt your reptiles are harboring anything, it helps keeps the teachers and parents minds at rest.

Transport, if you don't have the figured out this can be a problem, oh and wagons are a great tool for getting them from the car to the class room.

Other then that i can't think of too much more, i'm sure your ready for the questions they tend to be more interested in where you got them and how much the cost... i try to be hinest in telling how much the animal cost and then its set up and food budget that way they think twice before getting one. Man i miss doing programs i had to down size when i moved for college but now im thinking of starting up again... just with alot more interesting of animals.

Good luck and just have fun with it.
Oh and make sure ur animals and healthy and frienly becuase no matter what kids will want to play with the animal even if you tell them not to.
