My students need a Magic SCHOOL BUS and entrance tickets to go on an adventure to Legoland.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
We can read books about force and motion and prepare for a paper and pencil test. But why be constrained to the confinement of a classroom? Let's go out and experiment with force and motion and make real life connections.
I teach at an inner-city charter school in Southern California.
My school serves African and Mexican Americans in an economically challenged area, about 99 % of the school receive free or reduced lunches. More than half of my class is learning English as a second language. Many of my students come from Spanish speaking homes. I have 24 of the best second graders a teacher can ask for. My students are eager and ready to learn new concepts and I would love to give them the opportunity to make real life connections.
My grade level colleagues have already fundraised for their student's tickets to Legoland and now the students are anxiously waiting for our Magic School Bus and my class' entrance tickets. We are so close to reaching our goal and seeing how what we read about force and motion can be a real life application and therefore make personal connections.
Your donations will take my class on an adventure and give them an opportunity to visit a place that they may not have had the experience or resources to go on their own.
We all remember what is what like to go on a field trip. These memories made here will last far beyond their schooling years and hold a special place in their hearts.
