Mrs. Thorwarth from Benton AR is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need a Google Expedition Kit to explore, evaluate, engage, elaborate, and explain the different corners of our wonderful world.
I can not say enough positive things about my kids and their drive to learn. They are constantly surprising me while going through the normal struggles that middle school kids go through. But through it all, they are amazing!
My kids are awesome students who will be leading our world one day.
Our classroom is full of energetic 7th-graders at all levels of academic abilities, economic backgrounds, and social needs. They are full of intelligence and creativity. That is where you can help!
The Google Expeditions Kit that I am seeking comes complete with 30 virtual reality glasses, devices, charging stations, facilitator's tablet, router, and case. This kit would transform not only my classroom but also how my kids see the world.
Our world should be explored to the max and not just read about in a textbook.
With the addition of this virtual reality system, my kids can explore each region of the world in a whole different way...an amazing way. While I might not be able to load up all my students into a Magic School Bus for a magical field trip with Miss Frizzle to all the countries that we learn about in World Geography. These virtual reality glasses and system will be the next best thing!
In the fall when we are studying about preservation, my kids can walk through National Parks. In Latin America, the students can see the spacial inequality that exist in Mexico City or how the indigenous people adapt their customs in Guatemala to the modern world. How awesome would it be for my students to be able to walk through the rain forest of Brazil? In the spring, the students can explore and see the micro-entrepreneurs in the markets in Africa or the Monsoon weather patterns in India. These are just a few times that this virtual reality system would enhance my classroom. I get chills of excitement thinking about all the places that I can take my students with the use of this technology but I can only do it with your support.
In my classroom I have the future of our community, country, and the world. Won't you help my students experience the world from their classroom. Thanks!
