My Students

I teach at a lower-income school where the children enjoy learning and are happy with the opportunities that they are given. We have a group of about 100 students in the school garden club, but we have 1200 students on campus total that would all benefit from the school garden. There is a high group of them that would benefit from the garden for a break for their daily lives outside of the school. Please help me, help them. Thanks

My Project

The students in the class will be able to give our bearded dragon a more realistic environment to live in the classroom. The materials will help the bearded dragon feel more at home, allow it to grow into a healthy adult dragon.

The reptile bulb will allow Elliot, the dragon to get the natural UV rays he is missing from being outside.

The hammock will recreate hanging out in the trees.

All of the other materials are allowed to the students to recreate natural situations for Elliot. The materials in this order will take care of the needs of Elliot and enrich his life to the fullest
