Mrs. Amador from Kingsburg CA is requesting a classroom visitor through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Walk Through The American Revolution

Help me give my students a hands-on history presentation to allow them to actively participate in an exciting retelling of our nation's beginnings. Through dramatic activities, students will become the men and women of the American Revolution!

My Students

My wonderful students come from a small community that is under resourced and has a high poverty level. Even though our school is a Title I school and all students receive free lunch, they are given many unique opportunities.

I love to expose my students to opportunities at school that they would not normally have at home.

I believe that a positive school experience is the key to their future success.

Our school allows for enrichment activities outside of the classroom. For the past several years our small school has sent students to the state level with their History Day projects and all fourth through eighth grade students participate in the Science Fair. Furthermore, our students are given the chance to try out for ballet, sports, and art classes.

These unique experiences, along with rigorous, high quality instruction, current curriculum and supplies give our students a chance to be successful.

My Project

Since most of our students come from under-resourced homes in a small community, this is an experience they would not get outside of school. California Weekly helps bring history to life in such a way that students will remember the experience for years to come.

The California Weekly "Walk Through the American Revolution" presentation brings history to life through dramatic re-enactments, flags, maps, games, music and more.

Students will "become" the men and woman of The American Revolution.

This hands-on presentation will compliment the work we already do in class to teach the importance of liberty, patriotism, and our nation's beginnings.
