My Students

I teach a wonderful group of 6th graders. Eager to learn, and so enthusiatic any time we talk about a possible exploration in Science, especially Life Science. They are excited about Project Based Hands on Learning.

Many come from homes where they are limited in personal experiences having to do with the basic principles of Science.

( Little time to get outside and learn about their surroundings, little opportunity or guidance at home to learn about common processes around them involving science.)

My Project

This involves project based learning. I plan to take the students to a nearby stream, and use this technology to teach lessons on environmental issues. I will be using guidelines lined out by the Save our Streams project. We will check the health of various waterways by examining the populations of invertebrates living in the streams. The microscope would be vital in onsite exploration.

Using the large screen display a group of students can examine the individual organisms collected from the stream and collect data to determine the level of pollution that may be present and affecting the growth of life in the stream habitat.
