I teach 6th grade Science in a high-poverty area. I strive to make learning fun by using as many inquiry-based activities as possible such as this one. I am relying on your support to make it happen.
Most of my students come from low-income homes with very few opportunities for enrichment.
Many have never even been to a zoo. This project offers students the opportunity to explore local ecosystems and gain an appreciation for animals and the environment in a memorable way.
Your help will peak my students' interest in science and motivate them to investigate the natural world around them. Students will use high-level, critical thinking skills to reconstruct the skeletons of the owls' prey that they find in the owl pellets using science inquiry skills. This experience will keep them authentically engaged in their own learning and leave a lasting impression.
This inquiry-based experience will also make them aware of future career opportunities in the field of science.
Many of my students are interested in outdoor activities, but may not realize the potential for careers in this field. Throughout this project, we will investigate local careers in the field.
