Bringing Science to Life with Incubators

My students need an incubator to explore life cycles of birds.

My Students

I teach at at Title 1 school in a rural county in Georgia. I teach 5th grade students science and social studies. My student population is right at 100 students. The majority of our students come from middle-class families and live within a few miles of the school.

Many of our students will have opportunities to enter agriculture related professions, but lack the exposure to these careers at a young age.

Our students would benefit greatly from this type of exposure.

My Project

Students at my school have shown a strong desire to incubate and hatch birds as a part of our life science unit. Having access to a classroom incubator will allow me to bring this desire into a reality for our students.

By having a small incubator donated, I would literally be able to bring science learning to life.

As a science teacher, I am always looking for ways to incorporate meaningful learning experiences into my classroom. Many of the opportunities to explore real-world science are too costly to incorporate. My school has moved toward incorporating more STEM activities into the classroom and onto our campus, and I believe this project will be a great step in that direction.
