My Students

My students are from a metropolitan area in northern Louisiana. We are a high achieving magnet school in a low-income community. Many of the students in my classroom lack the resources to travel and see the world around them. Many are below grade level in reading and writing. Having access to educational resources would help my students to virtually see the natural wonders around the world.

I have twenty-four inquisitive students who are intelligent, imaginative, and possess a zeal for knowledge that is contagious.

My students are so eager to learn new things. They are very creative and love learning about nature. I love the high-level of energy that my students display. Everything is new and exciting!

My Project

My students want to explore Mt. Everest and travel to the lowest depths of the ocean. Some may say traveling back in time is impossible, but not with The Google Expeditions Kits! These kits give my students an opportunity to the travel all over the world; they can go virtually anywhere! Not only will my students be more engaged in the lessons, but the experience will help to make creative writing and art so much more meaningful.

From the Halls of Montezuma or to the Louvre Museum, exploring the world with each other will make learning about new places fun and exciting!

Oh, the places they'll go, and, oh, how much fun they'll have when they get there with Google Expeditions Kits!
