Suggestion for animals in classroom

Greetings,
I teach JH/HS sciences at a small school (read no budget). I currently have several aquariums that are not in use. 2-30gal, 1-20gal, 1-75gal long. I have all but one of the 30 gal prepped for reptiles or amphibs. I need to get opinions on what animals to get. I already have a bullsnake that has been a hit. I am looking for low-cost (both to buy and maintain, my money, low salary), hardy, kid friendly animals. I've considered iguanas (but they seem to smell too much, correct me if I'm wrong), cameleons (pricey here), anoles (had before, marginal success), turtles (kinda like this idea), more snakes (breeding mice, got food supply), geckos (?), salamanders (not one of my favorites but....), treefrogs (?). Anyone have any other ideas or suggestions? I'm not looking for any thing exotic just good animals. My kids are loving the snake (well, most of them) and keep asking if and what I'm getting next. Any help would be great.
Thanks,
MHill
