Hooray! This project is fully funded
At different times during the school day, I teach 22 unique high school students with special needs. The challenges they face may be physical, behavioral, medical, or intellectual.
Each day these students come to school eager to learn and fill my day with joy, laughter, and inspiration.
Along with their academic lessons, there are career activities, daily living skills, community experiences, and independent living skills. I challenge them every day to become as independent as possible and to achieve their individual goals and objectives. Each day my students accept that challenge!
My students are interested in learning about other countries. We have a world map in class, but a globe is needed so that they can see the actual placement of countries. It will also help to identify oceans, explain the seasons, and visualize their place in the world.
Touching, turning, and looking at the globe will help them to understand so many world concepts.
Many of my students are visual learners, and the globe will help improve their understanding of many geography lessons. The planetarium model will help to explain the seasons. It will also help to explain why the countries near the equator have warm weather and the poles have cold weather.
