My Students

In spite of their disabilities, my students have demonstrated their love for learning. They are very happy when we do projects that are hands-on as they are able to show understanding of the lessons we do, either verbally or by gestures. They get excited when I tell them "Okay, we are doing this experiment today " or when we do tie a hands-on activity to a unit.

My school is located in a low-income neighborhood with limited resources.

My students are all diagnosed with autism, with varying cognitive levels and language skills. Most of them are English language learners that come from diverse family backgrounds. Most of the families in my class are single income earners and have limited resources. Being in a life skills class, I see to it that the projects we do are tied to hands-on activities so that my students will be able to grasp the concept of what I'm teaching them. This is where project-based learning comes from, incorporating hands-on activities to make real what my students need to learn.

My Project

With this project , my students will be able to visualize and see what human anatomy, animal and plant cells and butterfly and chick life cycles are like using these 3-D kit models. I intend to use this as a center when we get to study about Life Science, specifically when we study about the different systems of our human body system and its functions.

As a center, this will help students understand more concretely the different topics on Life Science as they will be able to visualize and touch these kits.

This would make science fun and real to them .
