Mrs. Schirber from Las Vegas NV is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

What in the World?!

My students need books to explore and learn about how other kids live around the world. A set of 6 books will be used for small groups of students to read with the teacher.

My Students

My classroom is full of excited students who are inquirers and filled with so many wonderings! They love to research and learn more about the world around them. Our school is focused on creating internationally minded students who are always seeking knowledge.

My students not only learn about their city and surroundings but we also look at how people live around the world.

They are very interested in how kids around the world go to school, what they like to do for fun and what they eat.

My Project

These books will enhance my student's understanding of the world around them. The pictures and information in the books will help the students step into unique homes from around the world and discover the many fascinating ways in which people live and have lived. They will also travel to 7 different countries and follow one day in the real lives of seven kids from Italy, Japan, Iran, India, Peru, Uganda, and Russia.

These books will give my students a global introduction that goes beyond the usual symbols and sights.

My students will be able to see how some things may be the same but they will also see that not everyone lives like them. These stories will help them understand the world more globally.
