Explorers and Developers of the World

Help me give my students a Smart Globe in order to experience the world outside their village, and the Land and Air Model Kit to expand their enthusiasm for building.

My Students

My students are eager learners who enjoy hands-on activities. They are growing as leaders, not only in the school, but in their community. They see what happens around them and they determine what they like and dislike about what they see. Then, they discuss ways to better themselves.

My students are leaders in training who enjoy being active learners in all they do.

They especially enjoy social studies and science, which could be more actively hands-on with the appropriate materials. My students are eager to know more about the world around them and to grow deeper in knowledge.

My Project

This year, I began an Around the World Unit in my classroom. My students and I started with the United States of America. Since my students live in a rural village in Alaska, I wanted them to learn about the other states that make up the United States of America. The students were excited about getting to learn about a new state in the union each day. We discussed how the states were similar to the students' village, as well as how the areas contrasted. My students would enjoy the opportunity to expand past the United States and learn about other countries. I believe the Smart Globe will allow students to get a slight glimpse into the history of countries around the globe, as well as project my students into writing their own research projects about one of the countries of their choice.

The supplies for these projects will allow my students the opportunity to grow as active learners, researchers, and problem solvers.

The DaVinci Model Set will allow my students to use their building skills in order to create and grow in their knowledge of measurement. My students enjoy building with legos. They are constantly building homes that match their homes in the village. I know that as these students grow, if they remain in the village, they could be called on to help build a home or build up a fish/hunting camp. Having the hands-on building of the DaVinci Model Set will allow my students to enlarge their understanding of building, as well as embrace their culture as builders in the community.
