    My Students

    Our kindergarten class is made up of very curious and high energy students. Our school is situated in a very transient community. Many of our students are immigrants from countries such as Syria, Turkey, Pakistan or India. As such, our class is heavily made up of English Language Learners who are also learning the rules of social interaction. Our students love playing with blocks and building materials. They greatly enjoy creating structures and playing outside in our great field.

    How will this project impact them?

    Many of our students reside in apartment buildings and as a result have limited access to outdoor environments. Many of their developmental years are spent indoors in front of screens. Our goal is to provide an outdoor learning environment which will give them the opportunity to explore materials which they would not be exposed to outside of school. We hope to instill in our students a love of our environment so that they can grow to be good citizens of the Earth.
