Her name is Freya, the students named her this way after the Nordic Goddess. She is a quiet and lovely white mouse that has taught children how to be more responsible; they take turns every week to look after her hygiene, nurturing and hydration. Freya is going to be part of their class until the end of the year when she will go back to her previous home.
Children took special attention to her feeding, they say she loves chocolate cookies, bread, and tortillas. Knowing she is a rodent, they are always really careful with her having wood to chew.
Initially, Freya came to Escuela Caracol to help children learn about rodents, finally, she stayed and will be back next year.
