My Students

My school is a K-12 Charter school located outside of Charleston, South Carolina. Our 5th Graders are filled with students from all different backgrounds and varying abilities. My hope is to provide our students with an authentic experience of attending the Caw Caw Interpretive center, so we can apply ideas about ecosystems learned in science to real life experiences.

Our 5th Grade students are eager to learn, love animals, and have a hunger for making an impact on the world!

We hope to involve components of math in our field trip to show the real world relation of financially funding projects with a focus on global warming. It will help our students connect concepts learned in school with arithmetic, measurement, decimals, probability, and broaden our foundation of financial literacy and it's application to real-word issues! Our 5th Grade team strives to make our students' experiences at school something meaningful that they will remember forever.

Our school is committed to providing all students a safe and exceptional academic environment that cultivates independent learning, character enrichment, and regional awareness while developing accountable leaders, community stewards, and diverse thinkers through project-based experiences.

My Project

This year, our 5th grade students have developed a passion for researching information and reading about ecosystems. Our students have worked independently by reading nonfiction books and conducting research on teacher approved websites to collect facts on ecosystems, land forms, animals and plants. After researching multiple ecosystems, they choose an ecosystem that they wanted to study. To our surprise, many of our students wanted to learn more on our local ecosystems and how humans or local residents impact the ecosystem.

We would love to be able to take our students to the Caw Caw Interpretive Center to bring their learning to life.

Although the nonfiction books and technology our students use have photographs and videos of animals in them, we would love to give them an experience of a lifetime by taking them to see our local wildlife, plants, and ecosystem in real life at the Caw Caw Interpretive Center!

We will also involve math in our field trip to show real world examples. It will help our students connect concepts and ideas learned in school with the world around them.This trip will not only be a great reward for their hard work, but also a way to continue their stewardship by observing how we humans directly impact our local wildlife. We hope this authentic experience will instill the love of of nature and environmentalism in our students for a lifetime.
