Goal

The fifth grade class at Lealman Elementary is trying to raise $646.00 ($5.00 entry fee + $4.50 bus rental fee X 68 students) so that we can attend a field trip at Boyd Hill Nature Preserve. 

 

What will be done with my students

As a way to review the life science concepts we learned previously ahead of the 2018 Science FSA, the classes will be partnered with a (a couple of) park ranger(s), who will discuss the survival adaptations --
both physical and behavioral -- that make birds of prey so successful in the wild. Since there is a bird of prey aviary on site, the students will get some up close experience with the birds on hand. Afterward, we will go on a science walk around the park where we will review plant adaptations. 

 

Benefits to my students

The students will get an up-close review of standards:

SC.5.L.15

A. Earth is home to a great diversity of living things, but changes in the environment can affect their survival.

B. Individuals of the same kind often differ in their characteristics and sometimes the differences give individuals an advantage in surviving and reproducing.

and

SC.5.L.17

A. Plants and animals, including humans, interact with and depend upon each other and their environment to satisfy their basic needs.

B. Both human activities and natural events can have major impacts on the environment.

C. Energy flows from the sun through producers to consumers. 

 

Describe the Students

We have a mixture of low and high performers in each class, as well as English Language Learners. The common bond with all the students is that they come from impoverished homes (80% - 85% free and reduced lunch rate) where the $9.50 per student is not easy to come by. There also are certain financial constraints in the office, which make the difficult to rely upon them to help cover the balance for anyone who may not be able to pay. 

 

Budget Narrative

I broke the total budget of $646 ($5.00 entry fee + $4.50 bus rental fee X 68 students) up among the four would be classes attending the trip.
