Walton Education Foundation

to give 6th-9th grade students hands on experiences to better understand lessons taught in the classroom.
6th graders will have real life examples of how animals are classified by characteristics ( SC.6.L.15.1). 7th graders will research how different animals within the zoo have evolved as a species for survival and see these adaptions in real life(SC.7.L.15.2). 8th graders will get to see how living things share basics needs of life and how the cycle goes full circle (SC.8.L.18.4). 9th graders will use this field trip to get a better look into how animals are classified and how the animals have evolved over time. (SC.912.L.15.4)

Goal

to give 6th-9th grade students hands on experiences to better understand lessons taught in the classroom.
6th graders will have real life examples of how animals are classified by characteristics ( SC.6.L.15.1). 7th graders will research how different animals within the zoo have evolved as a species for survival and see these adaptions in real life(SC.7.L.15.2). 8th graders will get to see how living things share basics needs of life and how the cycle goes full circle (SC.8.L.18.4). 9th graders will use this field trip to get a better look into how animals are classified and how the animals have evolved over time. (SC.912.L.15.4) 

 

What will be done with my students

6th through 9th grade students will research the information that is relevant to their grade level standards. The students will then go to the zoo and see animals and apply their new knowledge to the animals in real life. After their trip to the zoo students will pair off to complete a project to demonstrate the knowledge they have gained. The classroom lessons will be taught during the second nine weeks and the trip would take place in December. 

 

Benefits to my students

It is proven through research that students learn best when they are applying the knowledge learned and can find real world examples to tie to classroom learning.  

 

Budget Narrative

Admission to the zoo is $15.50 per person, Bus transportation is approximately $300 for the gas, and bus driver pay for 2 buses.
