Just Keep Swimming, Just Keep Swimming!

My students need an aquarium of plants and animals to help their understanding of habitats and communities to expand just as far as the ocean.

My Students

My students are amazing. I have never experienced a more empathetic group of students. With they home lives and lack of family support that many of them come from, one would expect than these students should be focusing on themselves. This is not they case with this class. They include each other and do their best to try and help fellow students learn. It is impressive how they work together.

Not only do these students work together, they work hard.

Even though they struggle on a project or activity when an adult might think it is does not look "as good" as my students tell one another that is does look nice because they recognize that their fellow classmate did their best.

This is a great group of kids who deserve the best.

My Project

In first grade we learn a lot! In reading we learn about communities, including animals communities and what better way to see how a community works than one that includes a variety of animals, we also learn how plants and animals work together so lets add a plant to the community and it really fits the bill.

As part of our literacy program we learn some pretty amazing words.

With this aquarium students can see how "creatures" can "thrive" in their "environment." In science we learn about habitats. Is there a better way to lean about water habitats than to see them in action? The aquarium show how real fish and other animals live together in harmony.
