Ms. Krinsky from Paradise CA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need binoculars to introduce them to the exciting worlds of citizen science and bird watching!
My students are strivers who understand that life isn't always fair and that getting out of poverty is hard work that requires grit! They put forth tremendous effort to understand the concepts covered in class and interdisciplinary nature of science.
The majority of my students will be first generation college students, with 50% qualifying as socioeconomically disadvantaged.
To best serve the needs of this population we spend a considerable amount of time developing the skills needed to be scientifically literate.
Bird watching is America's fastest growing recreational activity! As we study ecology these binoculars will enable students with the skills needed to take up this challenging and exciting hobby.
For low income students, giving them hands on experience using binoculars provides a point of entry to the fields of ornithology and field biology.
When I brought my binoculars from home the students jumped on the opportunity to learn. I know they will love the introduction of a birding sub unit to our ecology curriculum. Some students have since approached me about starting a birding club on campus!
We are fortunately enough to be located in the Sierra Nevada Foothills (a hot spot of biological diversity). Our campus serves as an outdoor classroom and living laboratory. There is no shortage of native species to observe and identify.
Binoculars = Outdoor Education = Winning!
