My students need the opportunity to learn outside of the classroom setting. By attending the Museum of Natural Curiosity students will be provided with ways to learn that aren't possible in the classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I strive to create a classroom where students are eager and excited to learn each morning they walk in the classroom by creating hands-on and engaging activities for these young minds.
I teach second grade at a Title I school to a wonderful group of 20 students.
They are very hardworking and eager to learn new things. These awesome students are so deserving of this wonderful experiences! We live in a small, rural town in Utah, and we lack the resources and funding that many places around us have. We don't have the funds to enable our students to attend a field trip. These kids won't have experiences like this without your help!
With the opportunity to attend the Museum of Natural Curiosity students will explore curious wonders all around us. Throughout the museum students will have experiences in the rainforests, water works, discovery gardens, and exploring exhibits. They will get the opportunity to travel throughout the museum and have hands on learning experiences. In addition, they will have 25 minute facilitated activity in which they will enhance their observation skills by exploring how objects can be prevented from reaching the ground. This will be a fun and interactive learning experience that will be tied to our second grade core curriculum. Students will take what they have learned inside the classroom and have a hands on learning experience to reinforce their learning.
