A Gecko for the Classroom
My students need a Leopard Gecko, with a gecko habitat, to care for.
My brilliant second graders enter thirsty for knowledge wanting answers to questions that are answered through self and peer research with minimal guidance. My favorite quote is "Every truth has four corners: as a teacher I give you one corner,and it is for you to find the other three"- Confucius
Our Georgia school is a Title I high-poverty school, with over 70% receiving free or reduced price lunch.
My wonderful students are all eager to learn! Their favorite method for acquiring knowledge is through hands-on activities. My students love to investigate and experiment! Learning is best when it is hands-on.
Students will have the opportunity to study animal behaviors through inquiry and observations. They will be able to engage in the every day life of a gecko in its habit to build a connection between the development of a reptile and the environment of a person. This will help to build a better understanding of the life cycle process and the importance of necessities to survive.
Every child should have the opportunity to experience caring for and loving a pet.
By caring for an animal, students will acquire responsibility, awareness of Other's needs, and team cohesion within the classroom. Through these characteristic developments, it will help my students become better assets and contributors to the future of our community. Having EiÂdos (Greek word for Gecko) in our classroom will make this possible.
