Today, at Wren's site, I became aware of a program to assist children with the financial burden of their classroom projects. As a former educator, I can appreciate the efforts of this website, http://www.donorschoose.org/, and applaud, not only their goals, but the ease in which they are making it possible for children to gain access to hands-on knowledge across the learning spectrum.
The classroom project that Wren is promoting involves frogs! Oh, my! I wish there had been such a project and as dedicated a teacher when I was in school.
There are many more classroom projects that need your support and the website is user-friendly. So, if you choose to explore the possibilities, you may find a project in your locality that better reflects your personal interests and passions! Or, you can go to Calling All Scientists: Frog Life on View Classroom Project at DonorsChoose.org and make the purchase of a new aquarium for this one teacher in Detroit, Michigan!!
Won't you take a few minutes to check it out?!?
And Wren, thank you for the heads-up. To excite children about the wonders of nature fills me with delight.
