Help me give my students the opportunity to experience agriculture in our community by visiting the farm. Students will get to visit a local farm to see what plants grow in Georgia and how farmers make a living.
Our students attend a Distinguished Title I school that has approximately 76% of students receiving free or reduced price lunch. Students come from a variety of backgrounds that can ultimately affect student achievements, such as language barriers and poverty.
Many of my students worry about the next time they will eat, much less if they have enough money for a field trip.
As a teacher, I know the importance of early academic and social skills and would like an opportunity to provide my students with an abundance of opportunities to explore and experience the world around them.
Our students live in a world driven by technology, that is fast-paced, and with constant change. Often, basic life skills and other important career opportunities are overlooked in the urgency to have students "college and career ready." Let's pause for a minute and take students to a place that is always important and relevant to everyday life: the farm.
Farm-life is essential to all human beings, all over the world.
I want to give my students the experience of farm-life and the opportunity to see how the farm is part of their every day lives. Not only does the farm provide us food, but it is an important part of our local economy.
We sing songs about the farm, watch shows about farms, but we often don't get to step foot on a farm. Please help give my students the opportunity to see a real-life farm, just like the ones we sing about.
