A Teacher’s Nightmare

I found this on my way around t’internet late one evening. I have lost the internet address from whence I found this but I’m sure I’m not the first to feature it.

Please read the preamble to get the full force of the situation.

A class of primary children started a class project to make a plant pot to take home.

The teacher wanted to have a plant in it that was easy to take care of, so it was decided to use cactus plants.  The children were given greenware pottery in the style of a clown plant pot.  They painted them with glaze and had them professionally fired at a class outing so they could see the process.

It was great fun.  They planted the cactus seeds in the finished planters and they grew nicely. Unfortunately, however, they were not allowed to take them home.  The cactus plants were removed, replaced with a small ivy plant, and the children were then allowed to take them home.

The teacher said cactus “seemed like a good idea at the time”…
