My Students

My scientifically inquisitive students are a diverse group of sixth graders who live in an urban city in Bergen County, NJ. Although, they are diverse, a very large percentage come from a home where English is not their first language. This group of students have a passion for learning, but many are struggling readers with low comprehension skills. These learners benefit from hands-on learning, that brings difficult science concepts to life.

Please help my students understand life science, by bringing life into my classroom!

Recently, we adopted a bearded dragon name Rex however we are short a few items and would like to request a basking lamp, fluorescent uvb lamp, eco-carpet, vine, hammock, and food.

I would love to bring life science to life for my students by recreating a bearded dragon-friendly environment. By having hands-on experience with these creatures, we can explore their adaptations, physical structures and behavior.

My Project

I would love to bring life science to life for my students by recreating a bearded dragon-friendly environment. By having hands-on experience with these creatures, we can explore their adaptations, physical structures and behavior.

By providing these materials, the students will be able to observe how bearded dragons adapt to their environment based on their needs.

The students will be engaged by having living animal in their classroom and gain a memorable experience that goes beyond the imagination. I am excited to see the look on their faces when they find out that they will be interacting and taking care of a classroom pet with a great personality!
