  • My Class Needs building materials/outdoor equipment to engage students in active outdoor learning

    Launched March 16th, 2017 Project Deadline May 30th, 2017
    Classroom Size 22 Students School Size 300 Students

    My Students

    My students are grade 7s from a predominantly rural community. They are part of a K-8 school and are interested in creating and enhanced outdoor learning environment for themselves and the whole school. While they are rural children, many have lost touch with the outdoor play experience as parents largely work in the city. Because we are a small rural school, we are consistently under-funded.

    How will this project impact them?

    All funds raised will be used to purchase, install and maintain outdoor learning stations as well as create small animal habitats. The students, staff and parents at the school will help design, install and maintain the space in cooperation with the school board. The overall benefits to our plan include an ability to observe wildlife up close, a nurturing of the environment but the students, the opportunity to plant and watch the plants flourish (or not!), involvement in positive activities in the outdoors, more areas of engagement for the entire student body. Our play yard is pretty barren, a few trees, a football field and pavement.With funding for the supplies we are requesting, there will be fun and educational stations as well as increased physical activity for all of our students. With the Intermediate students leading the plan,there will be a sense of ownership and protectiveness

I am a mom, Girl Guide Guider and educator. I was composting before composting was cool. I believe there is more to education than brick and mortar buildings and pen and paper learning. Everyday with my students is new day to learn and grow together, and to improve our skills. I work in...
