Ms. Tuifua from Salt Lake City UT is requesting Art Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Let Me Count the Moons

Help me give my students the opportunity to connect Science to Tongan indigenous knowledge, so they can acknowledge the ingenuity of their ancestors. It is important that scholars have the opportunity to artistically express their understanding through art.

My Students

My scholars this year are very artistic. They are full of energy and they light up when they are assigned a project to create something. So far this school year, they've created family trees, a solar system, built their own civilization, and so much more. They have created some awesome projects. It is amazing to see them take charge of their learning through artistic projects. More impressively, it is amazing to see how much of the content they are able to apply to real-life situations.

I am amazed by how lit up their faces are when creating projects, and I love to capitalize on their creative abilities.

My Project

In 6th grade, we study the Moon Phases. In our cultural based school, we also study Tongan culture in 6th grade. In this project, they will be learning about moon. On top of that, they will be learning the myths and legends of Tongan culture that tell of the moon phases and their Tongan names. In addition, they will learn what plants are planted during each moon phase and at which time of the year. Most of our students are Pacific Islanders; therefore, we tie cultural indigenous knowledge and Science curriculum together into one project. It is important that our students recognize the Scientific ingenuity of their ancestors and use it to enhance their knowledge taught from the textbook. In this project, they will create an artistic piece to showcase the moon phases in English, Tonga, and incorporate crops that are to be planted on specific phases of the moon and explain the science behind each cultural belief.
