My Students

My students are eager learners and are excited and proud when they share what they are learning through their writing and projects. They also work well together. We have begun our bird study by reading the book "Pale Male" in class, which is a story about a Red-tailed Hawk who has made his home since the early 1990s near Central Park. My students are fascinated by this story. They are looking forward to learning more about birds and becoming "bird experts".

My Project

The main goal of For the Birds! is to get students excited about learning through hands-on discovery of the natural world that exists right in their own neighborhood. For the Birds! focuses on local birds and local habitats. This place-based learning encourages a sense of pride in one's own community. Gaining knowledge of the local environment empowers students to take an active interest in protecting it.

Through this study my students will have the opportunity to build on the basic science literacy that they have developed in earlier grades; not to be afraid to ask questions, make observations and collect data, in order to answer those questions and present what they have learned to their community.

These skills are essential for a lifetime of learning.
