My Students

As the teacher of the STEAM classroom, we do a wide range of activities that really interest the students. Our students do not have a great deal of opportunities outside of school to take part in manual projects. Through my class students are allowed to use tools, work with their hands, and create usable products for our school and our rural area.

We have built duck boxes and actually placed them in a wooden area to improve the duck habitat in our region.

We have built a deer stand that a local hunter is using in a stand of tall pines. Our students do the research, build the projects, and put the projects in the location it will be used.

My Project

We focus on building projects that will enhance habitats in our rural area. We focus on the natural habitats of the wildlife common to Jefferson County, Georgia.

Construction projects offer so many real-life learning opportunities for students and this air compressor will allow them to learn about construction tools while making the project easier to complete.

Help us provide our students with this opportunity.

We will build deer stands, duck boxes, and deer feeders with the equipment we will receive from this site. These projects will be placed around our wooden campus by students who helped build the projects and students who are active members of our "outdoor club". We have a variety of birds and we have seen deer from our windows.
