My students need an educator come to our class with live animals to teach them about animal adaptations, habitats, and defense mechanisms.
All of my twenty-one students are at the very least curious about animals, if not downright head over heels in love with them.
My first graders represent a variety of languages and cultures; this year, the countries represented are Yemen, Mexico, Philippines, Nicaragua, Bangladesh, Vietnam, and El Salvador.
Despite their many differences, one thing they have in common is their enthusiasm for school and their desire to learn. This makes me as their teacher want to seek out the best for them.
My students don't get to leave their neighborhood very often. Seeing the beach on the other side of town is a big trip. So, their opportunities to see live animals are limited. This grant seeks to bring a science educator to our classroom with live animals to discuss animal adaptations, defense mechanisms, and habitats. This addresses many of our science standards in an exciting, meaningful, hands-on, and memorable way. This is a perfect connection with our science unit that we'll begin soon about animals, and it also ties in with our language arts theme about animal adventures as well as our English Language curriculum about animal homes.
Bringing live, native (yet exotic to my students) animals to our classroom is a rare chance for my students.
With your generosity they will get a chance to understand the science standards in the most meaningful way possible. Thank you for supporting my teaching, our classroom, and public education!Read More
