My Students

My school is a Title I school where most students are living in poverty. As a result of this, they often lack the life experiences that many other students take for granted. Because of their lack of experience, they come to me with very little understanding of science but with a lot of curiosity. It is then up to me as their teacher to find ways to bring science out of the textbook and to life. My students thrive on seeing real-world examples of the science content that I'm teaching them.

My Project

My students thrive on real-world examples. It's not enough to just show them pictures of insect life cycles; they need to see it for themselves. Using these insect kits in the classroom will give my students the hands-on learning that they crave. We will witness first hand the changes that insects go through during their life cycle and the beauty that they bring to this world.

Caring for an animal can be a great way to build character.

My students enjoy helping out in the classroom. Having them take care of the insects and ensure that they are getting everything that they need, will give my students a sense of ownership and responsibility.

Basically, we think bugs are cool! Do you?
