My Students

Hello there! Thank you for considering this donor's choose project. My 5th grade students are all compassionate and kind young people. They blow me away every single day with their passion for helping others, reading, and learning more about their world.

Currently, these 5th grade students are working hard to create sleeping mats out of recycled plastic bags for people who are homeless in our community.

They are interested in learning more about the homeless population and how to help them. The sleeping mats not only give the homeless a warm, dry, and comfortable place to rest, but it also keeps plastic bags out of landfills and the ocean.

My Project

My 5th graders are excited to continue researching ways to help the homeless and keep plastic bags out of the ocean! This set of headphones will help them listen to articles and videos online.

We are upcycling plastic bags into plarn (plastic yarn) to crochet sleeping mats for the homeless in our community.

Students are researching how to help the homeless and ways to reduce, reuse, and recycle plastic. Please help my students research these important topics by supplying a classroom set of headphones. My students will utilize the headphones for testing and daily educational activities as well. They will enjoy having their own pair of headphones to use everyday.
