Building a Love for Caring for Animals

Help me give my students the opportunity to learn to create habitats for different types of animals as they learn about the things animals need to live health and safely in their environments.

My Students

I work at a school where 61% of the students receive free or reduced-price lunch. My class is an integrated prekindergarten room, which consists of students aged three to five years old. The class consists of 30% students who have Individualized Education Plans. The students are learning through investigation, exploration, and building their curiosity through a science-based curriculum every day. Their success is vibrant through their dedication, perseverance, and above all their smiles through the numerous unit-learning projects we have completed. Some ending projects include creating a “save the millipedes” video that was broadcast on our daily news to the whole school, to working with Scholastic Books to publish a book about “Building Around the World.” My ultimate goal is to build every student's love for learning, and to keep enriching my students’ lives to help assist them in building the best educational foundation I can.

My Project

My students are in love with learning about animals. From animals they have seen at the ocean, animals in the zoo, to nocturnal animals which we do not get to see, my students are eager and desire to learn more about these animals.

These materials, like the Wild Animal Set, my students will have the opportunity to discover animals around the world, their habitats, and things they need to live happy and healthy lives.

Through exploration with the Wild Animal Set, Animal Bingo, and World People Set, students will build a knowledge about animals from around the world. We will research and explore animal habitats in the wild and learn about what animals need to be safe and healthy. We will also talk about what we can do to help animals by protecting their natural environments.
