My students need a river tank ecosystem and accessories to better understand ecological responsibility and learn compassion for the animals in our ecosystem.
My students come from diverse backgrounds and that provides us with wonderful learning opportunities. Some of my students have special needs, and others are gifted learners. We also have children from military families, as well as some who speak English as a Second Language or English Language Learners (ESL/ELL). We are very fortunate to have such a beautifully diverse classroom community.
Although our school is faced with an increasing number of students from low-income families, my students are highly motivated to solve problems and make the world a better place.
My students are the scientists, artists, engineers, and mathematicians of the future. They care about others and want to make a difference in the world. I can't wait to see the amazing things they accomplish in their lives!
My students live near a river, and that river is home to many plants and animals that need our protection. Having a river tank ecosystem and the necessary accessories will help my students build a habitat similar to that of our river. Later, when the tank is properly prepared, we will add plants and animals to the tank.
This experience will help my students understand the interdependence between plants, animals, and the environment.
Knowing that the animals in our river have specific needs will enable my students to see the impact of our actions in a way that is meaningful. They will gain a true understanding of food chains and food webs, and that will help them understand factors that could lead to a reduced population or extinction in some species...and how that would impact the other organisms in our ecosystem.
Please consider helping my students learn the importance of ecological responsibility. Learning compassion for the fish, birds, and other animals in our ecosystem will influence their thoughts and actions throughout their lives.
