My students need a large fish tank with a hood and gravel.
For so many, Science class brings thoughts of dread, apprehension and fear. Imagine instead walking into science class curious, excited, and filled with anticipation! There are so many wonders to explore and discover in science class and no better way to explore them than real life!
My students are a curious bunch, eager for knowledge and passionate about growing as individuals.... they do, however, often forget this!
But that is where I come in, to remind them daily that life is full of surprises and curiosity is a gift which needs to be shared. I teach over 125 children with dozens of different personalities and interests. Our school district is not overly affluent and with New Jersey in the midst of education budget cuts, supplies are becoming more difficult to acquire. It is my hope that this organization can help these children become interested in learning which will serve them well in the years to come.
I fully believe in making my science class both as hands on and as visual as I can. I love to excite my students. Well, early this year we began a tadpole tank. This small project was far more successful than I could have possible imagined! I have students running to the back of my room every morning, before class, after class and even after school! Imagine that! After school to investigate and talk about science! Now I wish to take this one level up. I mentioned the word turtle in my class and they went insane. Their eyes lit up with the thought of getting a class turtle. I certainly cannot deny that. So I am requesting a large tank to set up for my turtle and other amphibians to provide my students a bit of excitement and satisfy their curiosity. We already have a spot in my lab picked out and a short list of names. If I can acquire a tank I will provide the amphibians myself, so any and all help is greatly, greatly appreciated.
Unfortunately, New Jersey education is going through a very difficult time.
Normally this would be a project I would be able to request through my science budget. It seems however, that I will not have a science budget next year due to cuts in town budgets for education. I provide a great deal of material for my class and would be happy to provide the animals, food and filters to run the terrarium, but the tank is out of my price range. Any help in fueling my young minds would be appreciated.
