Ants and Frogs and Mushrooms... Oh My!
My students need plants and small animals for our new garden center!
We live in northern California--accessible to a diverse range of ecosystems. We feel lucky, but sadly, some of our students have never been outside their neighborhood. for some, a forest is only for a fairy tale. That's why we want to enable them experience this diversity firsthand in our classroom.
My special needs 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade students are very gifted when given the proper opportunity to succeed; however, resources are often scarce.
We believe it is essential for our kids experience the world around them--not just on the television or the computer, but up close and personal. These enriching experiences can have a lifelong impact. We'd love to take them on field trips all across the state, but the high costs and logistics are usually prohibitive.
We were excited when obtained a classroom garden center. Our kids are engaging with fruit and vegetables in a way we couldn't have imagined.
Now we want to show our kids the diversity of life outside of our city by turning our garden center into a microcosm for our diverse state. For example, we have found a mushroom kit--for the forest, a desert hot house and grow a frog--for our rivers and lakes. As we fill our garden center we will teach them about the diversity of our state's ecosystems.
You can imagine how our garden center and our kids lives, will improve with all of these new items.
