- ItemThe Effects of Human-Animal Interactions in the Classroom(Florida Southern College, 2022-03)A traditional K-12 classroom in the state of Florida may contain 20-25 students and a single teacher. ESE and ESOL paraprofessionals may arrive in the classroom to work with their individual students. Some classrooms may have a class pet like a fish or a hamster. Though research suggests that classroom pets like insects, reptiles, fish, and small mammals such as hamsters support early childhood development and foster social interactions and social-emotional development (Meadan and Jegatheesan, 2010), many districts have outright banned the usage of pets in the classroom.
