Hooray! This project is fully funded

First of all I want to thank this organization for the opportunity to possibly receive these materials. I teach at a school in Louisiana where we have a low socio-economic level. There are many times when I pay for things out of my own pocket just so my students do not miss out. I have recently even bought some of them sneakers because they needed them desperately. So you can understand that I appreciate any help I get. The activity I would like for my students to do is to make a terrarium. There are so many teaching guidelines that can be accomplished by this. They actually make an ecosystem which they will get to watch evolve. This is a great opportunity to see a real life example of something I teach them. They get to watch how each part of the system plays a part in it's survival. The materials for this are: A terrarium tank, dirt, plants, worms. This would be for 25 students. This is activity will give the students something that will be their. A real life model they were able to make. Thank you for your consideration.
