Ms. Perry from Bronx NY is requesting a class trip through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

New York State of Mind

My students need a class trip for 50 students to view New York City from the Top of the Rock

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach in a high needs, low income neighborhood whose student population primarily consists of Spanish speaking English Language Learners. The group of students that will be able to participate in the field trip consist of not only English Language Learners but also special education students and generally low performing children. Regardless of their individual situations, these students are highly motivated, curious children.

Throughout the school year, the second graders have been intensely studying New York City. They have learned about the history, the boroughs, transportation, and the major landmarks in New York City. My students could talk for hours about the city, but unfortunately they have never had the opportunity of actually seeing these places and being a part of the city.

The view from the Top of the Rock is one of the most amazing in New York City. From the Top of the Rock, students will be able to see first hand views of the Empire State Building, Central Park, the Hudson River, the East River and many other landmarks. Besides the view, students will also be able to experience the area around Rockefeller Center and will be able to gain a greater understanding of the city they have been learning so much about.

With your help, my students will be able to take the information they are learning in the classroom and experience it in real life.
