Bird's Eye View
My students need 12 binoculars so that they can view the local and migrating birds.
Science opens our eyes to the amazing world around us.
My students are incredible.
They are hard working students who want to make the world a better place to live. My students attend a math, science, and technology magnet where seventy percent of the students attending the magnet program are minorities. My students are dynamic in terms of culture and experience, but they all enjoy hands-on learning.
Binoculars in the hands of 6th grade students are magical. Students realize that with their vision increased they can see the details in the world where they live. Our school is located near a park where many different types of birds migrate during the winter months. There is an April and May migration that we do not want to miss. Because of the proximity to this park and the interest in environmental science, I want my students to be involved in studying the migrating patterns of the birds.
Binoculars, birds, and outdoor learning are a great combination for success.
Hands-on science projects interest the students and help create life long learners. Learning involves more than four walls and text books. I want my students to know that Mother Nature also has a few lessons up her sleeve.
