Students are natural-born scientists! In my classroom, I teach students how to think and act like scientists when they examine, review, and evaluate knowledge and ideas through a process of scientific investigation and argumentation. When students walk into my classroom, they want to do science.
My students are ethnically diverse with the predominance of Latino students who have all failed in traditional school settings.
Many have experienced family trauma and/or the stresses of poverty. They are in great need of fun and hands-on resources; it's motivated students who have often been overlooked by traditional teaching methods. My school reaches out to these students with small class sizes, hands-on participatory learning, and flexibility in teaching.
Students will be using a 4k camera to capture images of the ecosystem. They will learn editing skills and have the option of making vlogs of everything nature has to offer.
We will investigate the natural world and explore everything from soil to creatures inhabiting their environment.
Students will take their learning outside the walls of the classroom and see life through the lens of their camera. A camera will make their learning more visual and engage them with the natural world.
We will upload edited pictures and videos to share our images with the community and contribute to a more visual and phenomenal world.
