We are a diverse group of inner city students at a Title I school in Grades K-8. All of our students are eligible for free lunch. Many families are struggling financially with families living in overcrowded homes and there are some who are homeless. Several of the students are English language learners while some are new to the school.
Our students thrive while participating in hands-on activities, therefore instilling a love of learning.
Our students are eager to learn and are grateful for the opportunities they are provided. They are a community of learners who support each other in the learning process.
Our students are studying life cycles and have been working with paper models.
They would really benefit from seeing live examples of the process including the metamorphosis of a butterfly.
Students will gain an added benefit of developing responsibility while they take care of living things. We also need replacement ants for our ant farm. Live examples will help spark their interest in science at this impressionable age. Additional supplies such as magnifying glasses and art supplies will be useful to make scientific models. These supplies will support hands-on activities and help scientific ideas become more concrete and bring them to life.
