Ms. Bowers from Boise ID is requesting a classroom visitor through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Nose-to-Nose with Idaho Wildlife!

My students need opportunities to learn about the ecosystems and adaptations of Idaho wildlife from experts in the field of wildlife management. Idaho Fish and Game will literally bring the students "Nose-to-Nose" with Idaho wildlife!

My Students

We have the privilege of teaching second grade at one of the most amazing schools in Idaho. We are a school of choice with an emphasis in arts integration. Students come from a variety of areas to attend our school. We have five second grade classes; 125 students in all.

Second graders naturally love learning about animals!

Each year our students complete a project based learning unit focused on the animal of their choice. They write an informational report, build an ecosystem model and create an informational poster. This is the highlight of the year! They work so hard and are so excited to share these projects with our first grade students and their parents.

My Project

For the past decade, we have been able to provide this experience for our students. Unfortunately, due to a change in funding, we can no longer afford to bring this program to our school. We just can't imagine not providing these visits!

They LOVE it!

It's engaging and informative. The kids love the opportunity to listen to and ask questions to a "real-world" expert in the field. Not only does the presenter do a wonderful job presenting facts about Idaho wildlife, she gets them excited about spending time outdoors and introduces them to potential careers in wildlife management.

There are four different presentations we would love to bring to our students: "Nose-to-Nose", "Creatures of the Night", "Incredible Insects" and "Scat N Tracks"
