Imagine to magnify your world, to see the world in big through the eyes of a child, to explore and observe and to help grow little scientists in the garden!
My students speak 19 languages and come from hardworking and determined families, mainly recent immigrants.
In the garden, we share our cultural difference on common garden ground. Most of my students receive free or reduced school lunch - meaning the parents do not have a lot of money and enrichment opportunities for my students are often limited. Due to budget cuts, our science education has some short comings and we would love to enrich the students hands-on experience. Due to the dedication of our diverse parent population, we were able to built a a beautiful school garden that the students enjoy and cherish. They are responsible for the maintenance and surely love to spend recess in the garden area instead of the black top.
The requested resources will magnify this experience. The students will be able to explore the garden and the life-cycles in the garden at their own pace. The teacher magnifier will help to guide student's exploration and add meaning and knowledge, before sending them back to observe and explore themselves. During recess, as well as during instructional time, we enrich the class by reading out loud. There is no age limit to the joy of listening to a book. The books about life-cycles will connect our literacy instruction with the science lesson. The hands-on life-cycle materials add a kinestetic, even flashy, aspect to leaning about life-cycles. Instead of sitting in a stuffed classroom coloring a flat piece of paper, they are outside, touching and rearranging the different elements.
If we do not teach our most vulnerable student population about life and the cycles of life and how to explore, observe and how to be aware and protective about the world around us....we are missing a chance to change it for the better.Read More
