My students need a terrarium and hermit crabs so we can learn about different ecosystems in our classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are challenged with learning about habitats and ecosystems through textbooks. I want to make my classroom a place where there are different habitats in the classroom for them to see, touch, hear, and all around experience.
I teach in a rural community school in Oklahoma with bright and ambitious students.
Our strength is our community support and our motivation for success. I am proud to be a part of our growing military school and always challenged to lead a classroom with students coming and going in the middle of a school year.
Having a terrarium will enhance the environmental science in my class because it will allow me to get hermit crabs so the students can watch the interaction of a real habitat. The students will be able to see how hermit crabs live, eat, and survive in a very different ecosystem. My goal is to provide the students with a variety of hands-on ecosystems such as a frog, fish, and hermit crab habitat so the students can compare the environments and interact within each one.
You can help me teach the students about our world in a way textbooks can not do.
I need your support so I can effectively reach my students today and for years to come. By having a terrarium in my class, I will be able to bring the outside environment into our classroom. Learning will be enhanced from it everyday.
