My Students

Our students are from a Title I school and most receive free or reduced-priced lunch. They love to sing, dance and enjoy hands-on​ learning.

Access and opportunity is a limitation our students try to overcome with creative learning experiences and donors like you!

As teachers, we are striving to provide opportunities for knowledge and authentic experiences in our classes.

A great way to expose our students to such experiences is to provide the tools and creative planning to learn in a fun, engaging environment.

My Project

Our local Science and Nature center offers indoor and outdoor exhibits and provides environmental science education programs to schools and the community.

Students use nets to collect insects in a meadow to explore real insects in their natural habitat.

In the classroom, students will meet some of the Nature Center’s arthropod animal ambassadors as they learn about their physical characteristics and life cycle. A hands-on activity using a simple dichotomous key reinforces their anatomical vocabulary.

Let's expose our students to authentic learning outside the classroom and into real-world experiences that leave a memorable impact on their science learning with insects.
