Students in Mary Trigg’s kindergarten class at Jackson Elementary School adopted a pet rabbit in April.

Before adopting the pet, the class read books and articles about what rabbits like to eat, how rabbits hear and how to care for rabbits.

They practiced their social studies and math skills by voting on a name for the rabbit and then created a histogram to see which name got the most votes.

They also wrote thank-you letters to the foster parent of the rabbit, named Buttercup by the class.
