Wonderful World Of Animals

My students need an aquarium to learn about the aquatic habitat, a Search & Find Science Center and specimen centers.

My Students

Empty lots, dilapidated buildings, noisy traffic...That's what my students see in the inner city. Can you help us bring a bit of nature into the classroom, and help us explore a habitat that is beyond our reach?

Every morning, I welcome 20 eager first graders ready to start the day.

Some come from foster homes and some come from families with parents who work multiple jobs. Our students come from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds, but that doesn't stop them from being curious and excited about school. They are bright, responsible individuals who love all things related to school, but they get especially excited about science!

My Project

We would like an aquarium, books and games that teach about animal habitats. We plan to keep aquatic animals, such as turtles and fish, in the aquarium to enhance the life science unit. They will learn that animals that live in water, have external features that help them thrive in this particular habitat. First-hand observation of live animals will peak their interest and foster great discussions.

This project is important because it fosters a curiosity and wonder for our natural world.

It fosters a love for nature, and plants a seed for future generations who will become stewards for the environment.
