Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are in a small school in a rural farming community. The students in our school have diverse backgrounds and a variety of needs. My classroom is a vibrant classroom full of the love of learning. We are a busy, motivated group who desires and needs engaging activities and technology. The students in my class love working in groups and sharing collaboratively about their learning experiences. The students in our school have diverse learning needs with diverse learning abilities.

My Project

Second graders love bugs and insects! This project will support the hands-on learning about all things bugs and Entomology. The Chromebooks will allow students to read books about insects, write projects about insects and make 3D designs of bugs. The iPad stand will allow students to showcase presentations they create on the iPad and to use for research and writing.

The aquarium and bug scoopers can be used to make real life observations and to continue to build students' knowledge base.

The Shrinky Dinks, Insects, and Jumbo Insects will be used for activities correlating with our insect unit and to enrich the students' learning.
