Exploring the World Outside

My students need a camera to take pictures and a canopy outside to have a shaded area during those bright and sunny days!

My Students

The students in my class are a great group of kids! To be entered into our program, the families must be below the poverty guide lines which means the students don't always come from the best environments. My students amaze me because they don't let their circumstances define them.

My students look to me for answers to the questions that are burning in their minds!

Because of their circumstances, some of my students aren't able to experience things that they wonder about. Their ages makes them inquisitive about everything! They come to school, no matter what has happened at home, and they want to learn. Having proper materials helps me to let them explore things they haven't even thought of yet.

My Project

There is so much to explore and learn about outside! Having a camera to capture all the things we see and do will allow us to bring the outside inside to explore more! Teaching the children the proper way to use a camera can also keep their interest in the outside world.

Having a canopy gives us a shaded area to go to when it's very bright outside.

The world can be scary but also a very beautiful place. Being able to properly explore it at the ages of 3-5 when the children are open to new things, helps them to fearless of new adventures.
