Taking dust bunnies to school?

My friends kindergartener has been told to collect a household dust bunnie in a ziploc bag and bring it to school as an assignment. WTF? Is the government recruiting our childern to collect samples so they can analyze our household detritus? Has anyone else heard of this?

They’re possibly doing something like playing with a microscope to look for dust mites. Though kindergarten seems a little young for that.

No doubt about it being the case! :rolleyes:

Show and tell anyone?

It doesn’t have to be a microscope, you can see dust mites with a good-quality magnifying glass.
