ROAR! We Love Animals!

My students need many science toys for their learning. They love using the one pair of binoculars we have to go exploring around our room. They pretend they are on a safari and look for animals.

My Students

I am a headstart teacher for 3, 4 and 5 year olds. They come from very poor families and I love giving them all I can. My children love coming to school every day and are so eager to learn.

They are so excited to try new items at school, as they do not know what these toys are, nor do they have them at home.

I love seeing their expressions when I introduce something new to them. They can't wait to get their hands on anything science related especially when it involves rocks, sand, water, and mud! They also love learning about animals!

My Project

I chose the many different animals for our science center because my children look forward to learning about animals. All kinds of animals come up every day in our discussions, what do they eat, where do they live, what do they look like etc..

The children will be so excited to actually see what the animals look like with these toys I ordered.

They will be able to touch them and look closely as to what they look like. I also ordered more binoculars so that there will be enough for the students in the science center. They will really feel that they are on a safari with the binoculars!
