I'm a 3rd/4th grade combo teacher. I am proposing help with funding for tickets to "People Like Me", a show that takes the students for a ride in science using gravity, light and shadow, and DNA. Along the way the curious character in the show encounters world dance and music from Asia, Eastern Europe, South America, Indonesia and West Africa. I need help with the purchase of the tickets and transportation. I have 20 students and need at least 4 chaperones. My students are in a school that is in a low-income community, in which nearly all of my students receive free lunch and are performing below basic academically. I believe that the more exposure my students have to outside resources pertaining to their grade level standards, the better they will perform academically. This show brings to life the science, dance, and social studies standards. I know for a fact how this field trip can only enhance these children's learning experiences.
