Help me give my students materials that my students can use to see the importance of insects to our ecosystem and provide them with new ways to learn about growing plants.
As a preschool teacher in a low-income school, my students are faced with challenges both in and out of the classroom on a daily basis. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences.
My 24 students are incredibly excited and curious about the world around them.
By providing them with materials that challenge and expand their thinking, we will make them better learners and will push them farther than they ever could imagine!
In my classroom, it is my goal to provide hands on authentic learning for my students that answer the questions that they have about the world around them. Our school has begun a green house project where we have begun composting and each class will be growing either flowers or a vegetable in the greenhouse. My students have had lots of questions around worms and composting as well as if soil is the only way to grow plants.
Another questions my students have asked is how insects will help the plants that we grow.
By providing them with insect growing kits, not only will they get to watch the different life cycles, but they will also get to release and observe how these insects will affect the plants we are growing.
