I work in a small, fully inclusive charter school, where almost 90% of the students receive free and reduced-price lunch. I work with students who are labeled in many ways: ELL, LD, ID, BIP, IEP, SLP, apraxic, autistic, ADD, ADHD, ODD, and the list goes on. I'm working to help students remove their labels and find their feet, as well as their voices.
My students come from a variety of backgrounds, but one thing they have in common is their thirst for creative learning opportunities.
My students need Chromebooks and seating to explore inside an actual honey bee hive.
The live cameras are set up to take students on a virtual field trip inside an actual bee hive.
Inside a bee hive, students will be able to identify the bee and insect features we've been studying about. Students getting this opportunity to observe nature's pollinators up close in such an advanced technological way would be amazing. These experiences would allow my students to explore the entomological field. Bringing bees into the classroom with Chromebooks and live insect cameras would be innovative and engaging for students that are otherwise checked out in the classroom.
