My Students

When our students were asked what they were most excited about this year, almost all of them responded "going on a field trip!" This outside of the classroom learning style can really solidify understanding about topics discussed in school. When our classes are really interested in something they share their ideas and ask questions; they get involved in their learning.

The fourth grade teachers teach diverse students at a title one school in Alexandria, VA where they receive free breakfast every morning, and many also receive free and reduced lunch.

Many do not get the opportunity to explore and learn more by going to new places.

My Project

Our students spend a few months out of the school year learning about the settlement, colonization, and conflict people faced in Jamestown. Activities that have and will foster learning this historical Virginia town are viewing and discussing images, projects, role playing, reading informational texts, viewing videos, and answering questions. The one learning experience missing is exploration of Jamestown itself!

Each donation will help us reach our goal of having every fourth grade student at our school participate in a field trip opportunity that will forever shape their understanding of Jamestown and its significant history.

Each student will need approximately $60 to cover the expense of busses, and the tour of Jamestown itself. Please join us in contributing to a lower overall cost for every individual, so he or she can reap the benefit of such an enriching day of learning.
