Mrs. Gross from Janesville WI is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Animal Excitement

My students need to see, learn, and have enjoyment learning about animals through tools like the Skullduggery Eyewitness Kits, the sun catcher kits, and the Four Seasons Kids Sewing Kit and Animal Crafts.

My Students

I have a very dynamic group of students. They have a love of learning that rivals a competitive sports team. My students come from all walks of life and interests. Through their learning, they strive to show their best work throughout their school day and beyond.

I hear a lot of "Can I do this?" when students have completed their required tasks.

When they are done, they want to show new ways to express their learning that will meet their individual learning style and varied interests.

My students show a great joy for learning and it is amazing to see what their minds can think up to create. I have also noticed a rise in major student needs outside the classroom environment. Some of my students are not in the best environment they could be and are suffering.

My Project

The Skullduggery Eyewitness Kits, the sun catcher kits, and the Four Seasons Kids Sewing Kit and Animal Crafts look very exciting for students to explore animals in a cute manner and utilize their creativity. It will get them thinking about projects they can do to enhance their learning in regards to animals. In addition, the My First Lab Mini-Duo Scope Microscope and the Beststar Microscope Slides will give my students an opportunity to explore animals and how they are similar/different from us.

My students are in a Personalized Learning environment and I would love for them to use the US Art Supply canvases and Apple Barrel Acrylic paints to create their own representations of animal habitats as it relates to our standards.

Overall, it would be amazing for my students to work with hands on materials to allow them to learn and explore the animal kingdom.
