Mrs. Salas from Sanger CA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Bugs Don't Bug Us!

My students need the butterfly kit, ladybug kit, and informational texts so that they can not only read about the life cycle of insects but see it happen right before their eyes!

My Students

As a teacher from a low socioeconomic school, I work with the most challenged of students. Parents send their students to our school with the hopes that they will be given the tools and knowledge to excel in their education. They are the best kids ever!

My students are an amazing group of kids.

They are hardworking, enthusiastic, and very respectful. They come to school every day ready to learn, put in their best effort, and take pride in their work.

My Project

Insects are all around us and my second graders are very curious about the bugs that crawl around our school, but most of the time the insects are moving so quickly we have very little time to investigate.

Having these insect kits and books in the classroom will give my students the opportunity to explore, observe, and get up close and personal with butterflies and ladybugs!

My students will be inspired to read, write, and observe these amazing insects! These hands-on activities will motivate them and it will be full steam ahead with learning about life cycles. When a child can see first hand the life cycle of a butterfly and then release that butterfly, they'll have a greater respect for nature.
