My students love observing birds, but right now they are limited to what they can see with the naked eye. Binoculars will expand their ability to observe birds, their markings, and behavior. We observe more birds over the fence in the surrounding neighborhood, but without binoculars, the distance makes it difficult to identify those birds with certainty. Birds on campus fly away as curious students approach, but with binoculars, they would be able to keep a respectful distance while getting a closer look. Seven pairs of binoculars will enable small groups of students to take turns observing, recording notes, and referencing field guides. Binoculars will enable my students to connect with nature in a powerful way. This set of binoculars will not only benefit these 23 students but will be used by students at our school for years to come. My first pair of binoculars changed the way I viewed the world and I want that experience for my students as well.
