Every Kid in a Park: Learning in the Great Outdoors

My students need transportation to the Mississippi National River & Recreation Area for an amazing environmental learning opportunity.

My Students

Our students are incredible! These children are amazingly kind, thoughtful individuals. They care greatly about school but are in need of opportunities that allow them to see the relevance of our classroom content in the world around them.

My school is incredibly diverse, and this diversity makes our school a unique, vibrant place for students to learn and grow.

My students are from a range of backgrounds. Some come from low socioeconomic backgrounds while others are living in more financially secure households. About a third of my students are Latino; another third are black or Somali; another third are white.

My Project

My project is requesting transportation for four classes of fourth graders to and from the Mississippi National River & Recreation Area.

The "Every Kid in a Park" initiative is an amazing opportunity for our fourth graders to experience the great outdoors while learning more about how to preserve the environment.

This trip will beautifully enhance our unit "Sharing the Planet," which focuses on how our personal choices affect the environment.

At the Mississippi National River & Recreation Area, students will learn about the Mississippi River, water pollution, climate change, and more. We may even have the opportunity to ride on a riverboat, an experience most of our kids have never had growing up in the city. Students will be able to see the relevance of the content we are learning in class, and they will be encouraged to explore this content further after the trip. I cannot wait to see their excitement!
