Animals All Around

Help me give my students play animals so they can learn the names, what they look like and where each animal lives in the world in order to support our Life Science Unit.

My Students

My students are actively preparing for lifelong learning, and it is tough for them since English is their second language. These kids are bright and look forward to each and every new lesson brought to them in every area of the school. They love exploring new topics, actively participating in hands-on experiments, and reading aloud to anyone who will listen!

We are an urban school with low socio-economic status, but that doesn't stop us from giving every minute we have to improve​ our grades, our goals, and our impact on humanity.

Our school is culturally diverse, which makes for a great global learning experience.

We are an accredited dual language school whose classes mandate that English is taught just as much, if not more than Spanish. We fulfill the "whole child" philosophy and make sure each child feels safe and loved. Truly, no child is left behind!

Even with that much going for us, we need your help so we can soar to even greater heights!

My Project

As we begin our Life Science Unit soon, I recalled how little my students knew about the animals that live on Earth last year.

Believe it or not, many of my students don't know the names of common animals let alone animals we rarely see but need to learn about.

It's common in poverty areas and I want my students to know the names of many animals as well as where they live, what they eat and who eats them.

With these items, we can sort the animals by habitat, find them by footprint, and get to know the food webs they are in to survive.
