My Students

Our sweet southern town is home to a small section of a rural school district with 4,400 students total. The town is committed to the education of their children and is very involved in the school community. The majority of students in our school district come from low-income households; the average income in our district is $19,000 a year. All of our students receive free breakfast and lunch daily.

My students come to school with a wide array of backgrounds and experiences, and they are loving and eager to learn.

However, many of our students come to school without basic classroom supplies, and budgets for materials are limited.

My Project

My student have a difficult time understanding land forms. We read about mountains and valleys, but this year I would like our learning to come alive with the creation of 3D models.

Students will measure out their own salt and flour to create "clay." Then, they will use their clay to make a 3D model of a specific land form.

When our clay is dry, we will use our new paints and brushes to color code our 3D project. My students love art, and they love to get messy. I know by incorporating art with math and science, they will create a memorable experience with land forms, and will be able to recall the information for their state test at the end of the school year. With your help, I will be able to create a fun project that will spark their learning!
