I have been given the wonderful opportunity to serve all 3rd grade students at JES. Through Non-fiction literature, I am able to integrate Science and Social Studies standards into our curriculum.
This is the very FIRST year that students at JES have had Science and Social Studies!
We have no prescribed curriculum so I am able to create and implement various types of learning opportunities. Students come to class eager and ready to learn - excited for what each day holds.
Because our Non-fiction program is so new, not many resources are available. I am asking for resources that will help our student at Jasper Elementary for years to come!!!
GROSS! BUGS! That's what most kids think. My project will allow students multiple hands-on learning opportunities to really get to know insects in their natural habitat.
Have you ever wondered what an ant colony looks like underground, or how a praying mantis develops?
I have! Students will first learn to identify distinguishing characteristics of insects through a microscope. After that, the learning opportunities are limitless with live bugs! This project will allow students to watch an ant colony develop and thrive, observe the social patters of termites, and document the life cycle of a praying mantis.
All of this will be accomplished during a year-long environmental science project to take the CREEPY stigma away from insects!
