A class project that backfired.....

Read paragraph before opening picture.
A class of elementary students wanted to make a planter for each student to take home. It had to be a plant that was easy to take care of so it was decided to plant cactus. The students planted the cactus seeds in the planters and they grew nicely but unfortunately were not allowed to take them home.
See attachment to see why.
The cactus plants were removed and a small ivy replaced them and the children were then allowed to take them home.
