The cost of a program around ichthyology given by a NYC Urban Park Ranger is $147, including <a target="new" href="http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm" onclick="g_openWindow('http://www.donorschoose.org/html/fulfillment.htm', 300, 800, 'fulfillwindow');return false;">fulfillment</a>.
Make ichthyology come to life for my students! We are a 5th grade Bilingual (Spanish) class from the Bronx, and as you might expect, opportunities to learn about New York's Natural History are limited due to funding and other constraints.
The specific aim of this proposal is to introduce my students to the study of ichthyology. Ichthyology will be a major focus of our studies in science during April 2006. As the programs are given in English, it will also reinforce English as a Second Language for my Spanish-speaking students.
New York City was once home to a very large variety of natural wetlands, of which less than 1 percent remain. Our city's parks provide the only opportunities for my children to see wetlands up close. This program will take place at the Mill Pond Nature Center at Mill Pond Park in Queens. On behalf of my students, and myself I thank you in advance for considering us for funding.
New York City's Urban Park Rangers has a very fairly priced means to supplement classroom studies of Science and Natural History. These programs are for grades K-8 and help students meet academic standards in Science, English, and Math. The students will visit one of several New York City Nature Centers or Historic Houses and take part in a series of hands-on activities led by an Urban Park Ranger.
Programs allow for as many as 30 students, so our class will include the school's 4th grade Bilingual class in order to maximize student learning.
