My Students

We need your help to continue on with our creative education and project-based learning activities.

Most of the students who attend our school come from low-income homes, foster homes, or group homes.

We also have a large number of special education students, so hands-on materials are very important for our students' growth. They learn best with hands-on materials and experiences, which can be difficult because materials cost money. Our school relies on finding funds from wonderful people to help us purchase the supplies needed in our classrooms.

My Project

In a honey bee community, one can find a level of cooperation and collaborative teamwork that exists nowhere else on earth. Each bee has an important role to play to guarantee the survival of the hive. Some bees work in food production, some in reproduction, some in raising the young, others as hive security officers — there are even bee housekeepers!

In this lesson, students are asked to consider the people who provide services and necessities for them, then design a hexagon cell that represents their respective contribution.

Cells can be connected to create a honeycomb-shaped display that expresses appreciation and recognition. This display will be placed in our school library.
