My Students

Our school is a small public elementary school located within the Bronx. It is composed of students of various academic abilities and cultures. Approximately half of our students are from low-income families. As a school, we are committed to ensuring that each child receives instruction that is tailored to meet them at their level and to challenge them.

We are looking to provide our students with a deep connection to their home community within the Bronx.

Our students are eager to learn and benefit greatly from hands-on experience.

My Project

Through this trip and set activities, the students will be able to connect to their Bronx community, the Pelham Bay park and the waterways around Orchard Beach. The program is designed to use STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) to teach the stories of the Siwanoy and Lenape trips that used to inhabit the Bronx.

By exploring how the tribes used natural resources to survive, the students will develop a deeper understanding of the role that nature plays in all cultures.

This will encourage the students to become caretakers of their own local environment. As they begin to understand their own communities, they will develop ideas on how they can protect and preserve these resources.
