My students need real science tools and specimens to be inspired and exposed to what career scientists use in their lab.
My students are amazing and resilient learners who live in the West side neighborhood of Chicago where there is violence, gangs, and high poverty. This neighborhood school has 99% African American students and 99% of our students qualify for free lunch. Despite these challenges, our lifelong learners who take responsibility for their education and character, which will enable them to build a positive, constructive, and successful life.
At our school, all staff are united in their efforts to provide a safe learning environment that encourages student inquiry, perseverance, and enhances competency in literacy, science, and mathematics.
My students need to touch, smell, and see all the specimens that are involved in biological taxonomy. Students will be able to explore each kingdom by surveying and dissecting the organisms. They will understand and explore the vocabulary and tools that go along with classification. We will start with mushroom and worm dissection and end with frog and pig dissections. Students will be be inspired by the body systems of animals.
My students barely have a working science lab, and this is a game changer with scalpels and biological specimens for my future PHD scientists.
They will continue to experience collaboration, precision, and the complexity of biology. This is a highly engaging activity that they will experience in high school and college, but I want them to experience dissections in elementary schools. Virtual dissections and textbooks are not enough, I want biology to come alive with the smell, touch and messiness of the animal classification in the real world.
