A Good Environment

My students need Jumbo Animals, Adaptations Instant Learning Center, Habitat Challenge Game, a Science Viewers Set and Hot Dots Review Cards to help them learn about habitats.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

"A good environment, a good environment. All living things can thrive in a good environment." This is a song my students sing when we learn about habitats and environments. We learn how animals adapt, how plants and animals help each other, and how we can help the environment stay healthy for them.

I teach 17 learning-hungry first graders at a title one school in rural Alabama.

Their ability levels range from special needs to gifted learners. They enjoy learning about themselves and the world they live in. They are especially interested in science-related themes.

My Project

The requested adaptation learning center, habitat game, science viewers, Hot Dot review cards, and jumbo animals will help my students gain a better understanding of the habitats and environments the animals live in. They will be able to sort the animals into their correct habitat by using concrete examples of the animals. They will identify examples of endangered animals. They will be able to recognize the importance of maintaining a healthy environment for the animals.

A healthy environment in which all living things can thrive, is made possible with the help of people.

First graders are not too young to recognize their role in maintaining a healthy environment for the animals, and themselves. Your contribution to our class project will help them understand this important life skill.
