I teach second grade at Kimberley Park Elementary School. Kimberley Park is an Equity Plus school. The majority of our students are on either free or reduced lunch. We have very limited support from our PTA. Our parents are great parents, but they just don't have the financial freedom to help out our school. My class is studying dinosaurs. I would like model dinosaurs so they can actually see all the parts of the different dinosaurs. To go along with the dinosaurs, I would like informational cards about all the different types. These can be placed in our science center. The children can then read about them on their own. The children are so amazed at dinosaurs. They will truly enjoy this experience. Thank You Very Much
