My Students

My school is a great supporter of science learning and recently executed a full day of science activities for the students.

Our school is a semi-urban, year round public school, in Rolesville, NC.

We have 735 students, 30% of which receive free or reduced lunch. We have exceptional community involvement, with the mayor and other local officials frequently participating in our events. We also have 3 separate classes for students with moderately intellectually disabled students. These students are tightly woven into the population of our school, included in all school-wide activities and valued by administration.

My Project

The students with moderate intellectual abilities, ranging in age from 5-12, grades K-5. There are 22 students altogether who will benefit from this project. Science resources for these children are limited, but their curiosity is immeasurable.

This project will significantly improve the students' knowledge and understanding of life cycles.

A recent school event, Science Day, opened their minds to the various ways in which our world functions and works. I would like to build on that interest by bringing a hands-on activity to the students. The children will be able to actually see first hand the metamorphosis of a caterpillar to a butterfly. Moderately intellectually disabled students learn best by seeing and doing as their reading and cognitive skills are significantly below the norm. This project will have an enormous impact on the students learning!
