Coral reefs...sharks...schools of mackarel...the ruins of shipwrecks...all these sights and more will come alive for our fourth graders with your generosity! I am a reading teacher for eighty fabulous fourth graders at Ralph J. Bunche Elementary School in Compton, California. Our school is a Title I School in which all of our students qualify for free or reduced lunch. Our student body is half African-American and half Latino. This year, for the first time, our fourth graders attend science class daily. When asked to name their favorite subject, an overwhelming number of our students respond, "Science!" Science explorations enable our students to apply their natural curiosity and expand their basic vocabulary in an inquiry-based academic environment. We know that the most meaningful science experiences for our students occur in a hands-on setting. However, both attention to and funding for science are extremely limited in our district. My two co-teachers and I have planned a day-long trip to the California Science Center for our fourth graders on March 10. At that time, the Science Center will be showing the 3-D IMAX movie "Deep Sea." We would love to provide our students with the opportunity to view this movie as a complement to their in-class life science studies. We know that this would be a thrilling and unforgettable experience for our students, and one we would be unable to provide without your kindness. Thank you for your care and support.
