A Trip Around the World...Without Leaving Our Classroom!

My students need composition books for recording their "travels", resource and reference books, maps, activities for reinforcement and photos of real-life cultures.

My Students

Come with us as we travel around the world exploring continents, oceans and cultures...all without ever leaving our classroom. For this, we would love to have journals for recording our "travels", real-life pictures of cultures, maps, resource books and activities to practice what we are learning.

Our school is AMAZING!

Our students come from a variety of backgrounds. They come from a high-poverty area, but most of them have tremendous family support. Family members are often seen helping out in classrooms and with school projects. We have a high Hispanic population with many of our students coming from homes where Spanish is the main language spoken. We house many special education programs and have received awards for our inclusive practices. We have many co-teaching models, but all teachers embrace the "all means all" philosophy. Now, we have been selected to be one of a handful of schools that will have an ALM in each grade level. Students who are selected for this program are chosen using a variety of criteria. Studies have shown that while there is much done for struggling students, our accelerated students are plateauing. This model allows the students to not only learn the required Common Core materials, but to take them further and deeper and at a faster pace.

My Project

There are so many amazing things happening in our world today. Giving our students an opportunity to explore these things and learn from them is an amazing opportunity! For years, our second graders have learned about the life cycle of local animals. Well, why not "take a trip" and learn about the amazing animals of Australia? Learning about hatching an ostrich is as exciting or maybe more exciting than learning about hatching chicks. Why not "travel" to Antarctica and learn about changes in matter, all the while learning about global warming and the melting of polar ice caps? Maybe one of these students make the difference in changing what is happening. Second graders are responsible for creating comparisons between our local environment and culture and those around the world. Why not allow these students an opportunity to immerse themselves in these cultures, environments and habitats?

Our world is full of exciting learning experiences for everyone.

But our world also is in need of some help. The first step toward solving a problem is becoming aware of it and understanding it. Won't you join me in helping inform our students so that they have the opportunity to make a real difference in the world? After all, knowledge IS power!
