Third Graders Need Sturdy Camera for Science Observation

My students need a camera and memory card that can handle their expectations!

  • $362 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Whether it be the signs that tell them what to do or pictures of the swamp habitat and what animals live there, elementary students are always looking for visual cues. Now imagine these same students doing their own exploring and making their own visual connections!

My students are Third graders who are super inquisitive and love hands-on activities.

My students are creative and willing and able. Let's foster creativity in our children. We do live in a high poverty part of Georgia, but it doesn't mean we can't do less than amazing!

My Project

Elementary students face the daily challenge of relating their science with their immediate world interactions. Imagine the difference between studying the traits of habitats and animals and actually exploring these habitats! These children will be able to explore, not only their own ecosystems with real connections, but their own creativity. The possibilities do not stop with science either! These materials could be used with technology projects, student created picture projects, media festival activities, and more. The ability to not worry about whether the student can take care of the technology is what makes this project so amazing! Drop the camera in the water and video a fish, put it on the wet ground to video an animal's point of view, get creative because this camera can handle a child's imagination!

This is not a one project pony.

This camera can, and will, be used over and over again! Students see pictures and video everywhere..let's help them lead us through their points of view and see where their journeys take them!
