Ready, Aim, Shoot!

My students need 2 digital cameras to enhance our Science and Math curriculum.

My Students

Look around at everyday objects. Do you see a rectangle, triangle, sphere, cylinder? An example of matter? Seasons? Animal adaptations? Math and science concepts proliferate our world, but for my students they seem to exist only in a textbook.

I teach 20 curious first graders in an urban school.

They have a love of learning and enthusiasm for the projects we do at school. My students are a very diverse and bright group of children who are mainly kinesthetic and visual learners. It is my pleasure to inspire them and guide them on their educational journey.

My Project

My students will be able to tackle projects where they are responsible for reporting on a concept. Students can use the camera to document their assignment and then present those findings to the class. For example, when we are learning shapes we can go on a shape hunt or make shapes with our bodies and take a picture of them for a class book. Think of all the fun learning we can do!

Recently my students were asked to share what they liked most about 1st grade.

Each and every student cited a hands on experience I had provided, some even recalling in vivid details the educational lesson that went along with the experience. These cameras will help make my lessons relevant to their world and allow them to see Science and Math all around them.
