Mrs. Dunhill from Las Vegas NV is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students insects that will teach them about insect life cycles and help our school garden. The butterfly, ladybug and praying mantis habitats will help our students get hands-on learning about good garden insects.
Our students are very curious and are full of questions. They strive every day to learn something new. We have worked with Green Our Planet and installed our first set of garden beds. We want these beds to be a learning classroom for students. Whether we are inside or outside out our learning never stops.
Our Kindergarten students are very curious about the world around them and we want to give them the chance to learn as much as possible.
Our students live in sunny Las Vegas, NV. As teachers at a low income/low SES elementary school, we try to give our students as many hands-on learning activities as possible. Our students don't get the opportunity to explore much of the world around them. All of our students school-wide receive free breakfast and lunch and 30% of our students are homeless. Our school's goal is to provide students with the best learning education while teaching them how to be the best person they can be. One small act at a time, we can change our world.
The butterfly, ladybug and praying mantis insect habitats will give our kindergarten students the opportunity to learn about and witness the life cycle of insects that are good and helpful for our school garden. The life cycle models will give students a better view of what each life stage looks like.
We would like our students to learn about insects that are good helpers for our school garden.
We have picked butterflies, ladybugs and praying mantises. These insects are good for the school garden because they eat the bad insects that kill our plants. Our kindergarten students are responsible for keeping the garden bad bug free.
We added the cricket habitat because we have a bearded dragon and a leopard gecko that the students learn to take care of. The students learn how to grown vegetables for the lizard but the cricket habitat would help them learn about the insects that our lizards love to eat!
