My Students

Three years ago, I started a innovative and very hands-on animal club at my school called Zoo Crew. It was designed for students to be hands-on and to learn about animal conservation on site at the school while caring for these wonderful creatures. With the 15 different animals in the club, the students are able to bond and to take the necessary responsibility for their care.

The education regarding the hands on experiences have built my student's confidence and pride in taking care of creatures that cannot care for themselves.

Many of my students have shown incredible interest in Veterinary medicine, and willing to look at animal conservation issues within our own community.

My Project

The supplies that I am requesting will help my students feed the animals in our Science Lab. These students are in a club on our campus called Zoo Crew. They take care of all 15 of the Science animals, while taking on the education and responsibilities that these animals require. The bedding will be used in the cages so they can be dry and clean, and the feed will be used to keep the animals alive and healthy. The fogger will help with the humidity in the enclosures for our amphibians to live healthy and the ramps will help the turtles come out of the water to sun and prevent disease. (Shell rot). These items are extremely important to our classroom animals.

Our club has been a great option for students to have the opportunity to commit to multiple hands on animal experiences in my classes and after school.

I cannot express to you the joy these animals have brought to these children, and have spawned new interest in field of Science, and esp. in animal science.
