Mrs. Fowler from Travelers RST SC is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Special Education, Wild About Conservation!

Help me give my students the opportunity to contribute to sustaining wildlife populations across the globe through symbolically adopting an endangered species as a class pet.

My Students

My students are all special needs students, with their education programs. They are all considered to be at risk students. They are all on free or reduced lunches. My students range from third grade through fifth grade. My students are performing well below their grade levels and are some of the sweetest and caring children you would want to encounter. They struggle in all academic areas but are all very capable of learning and developing to their own individual potential.

My Project

All of my students are becoming increasingly interested in human impact on the environment, as well as getting a classroom pet. Symbolically adopting a polar bear and an Amur tiger through the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) would allow my students to combine these two interests.

Through the adoption process, my students will share their understanding about the impact they have on animals and how they can improve the future of our planet.

The students have researched various endangered species and decided as a team to adopt a polar bear and an Amur tiger. This project encouraged critical thinking and social interaction within the special education setting. Once the adoption kits arrive, the students will research and present various actions they can practice in order to protect the environment on a local and global level.
