My Students

Lisa Ling stated, "The best education I have ever received was through travel." Help our future leaders travel to new places and see historical landmarks before they are gone and make connections with what they are reading.

Our school services military and low-income families, with 100% of students receiving free breakfast and lunch.

Students come to school daily with a determination for learning despite their hardships at home. They enjoy using technology at home if available and thrive when they are allowed to engage in meaningful activities.

My Project

Children have a natural curiosity to learn about the world around them. Students can foster this curiosity by using Merge Cubes and VR goggles to learn not only about the world around them, but also space and their bodies. Instead of just reading about climate change, students can take a trip across land and water to see and experience the negative impacts of CO2 on the environment. They will be able to view the works of different artists, spend time in a space station, and learn about different body systems using the combination of Merge Cubes and VR goggles.

My students will be more engaged and immersed in their learning with the addition of Merge Cubes, VR goggles, and the opportunity to sit more comfortably.

All items are light weight and easy to move across the classroom to accommodate multiple groupings of students or for students to work independently. The chair ball with feet and donut ball will provide my more wiggly students with a means of getting the wiggles out while still learning.
