My Students

This is our fourth year at our new, beautiful charter school. My students are so excited and eager to learn! Being a brand new school requires new materials. We are in a small rural town in Georgia. My students come from all over our city, many driving 30+ minutes one way to school. Our school focuses on a classical education centered on the three phases of the classical Trivium. The critical thinking skills developed through the rigorous use of the Socratic Method throughout the curriculum will foster an ethic of self-leadership and be a platform for learning the four Classical Virtues: Wisdom, Justice, Temperance, and Courage.

My Project

I am trying to get materials together for our unit on Life Cycles. Last year someone donated an incubator and we hatched chicks! I think we could have had a better hatching rate if we were able to check the humidity levels in the incubator. I would like thermometers to be able to do this with.

The butterfly and praying mantis habitat kits will engage my students and get them excited about our life cycle unit!

We will also be continuing our plant life cycles as well with our hydroponics tower garden! If we get these material I know my students will learn so much about the life cycles of plants and animals.
