Mrs. Heathcote from Fayetteville NC is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

We Caught the Science Bug!

My students need real life experiences investigating insects and their life cycles in our environment. We will need a Chromebook, Scholastic Vocabulary Readers, and other insect habitats and catchers to learn as much as we can!

My Students

My students are a very creative and energetic group of students who love to learn. They spend a lot of time collaborating and working together as a team to accomplish the tasks at hand.

The students in our classroom enjoy working on group projects and using their creativity to create amazing presentations to share with their classmates.

The students in our classroom love to partake in inquiry based lessons and by using hands on activities to enhance their learning.

Our school is a Title I school and is also located near one of the largest military bases in the United States. We serve students of many different backgrounds and they all work their hardest.

My Project

Students will use the Scholastic Vocabulary Life Cycle readers to learn more information about different insects and their life cycles. They will be able to learn the different vocabulary words associated with the insects and each stage of their lives.

Students will be using the Chromebook to do research on different types of insects and their life cycles, characteristics, and habitats in the world around them.

Students will also use the Chromebook to collaborate together and creative insect presentations on Google Classroom to share with their peers using their research.

Our classroom will be using the insect habitats and equipment to go outside to find and gather different insects and bugs that are local to our area in order to analyze them. They will also be raising ladybugs to observe their amazing life cycles and the books on insects will be used to do further research and identification. Having these tools are necessary for the students to explore, research, and observe amazing insects!
