The Vaccination Project September 18, 2022: Books and Ecosystems

We have a new project this week from a Houston middle school teacher who needs more books she can coax the boys to read. She has a large collection of science and technology nonfiction books here. Many thanks to Oriental Bluebird for sharing this advice!

This project should not be difficult to complete, with matching funds from Montgomery Family Fund: We believe that instilling a love of reading is essential for students to be successful in life. We invite you to join us in supporting projects that bring books to classrooms in Texas.

Item #1

project: Information Science Books

resource: Help me add nonfiction science books to our classroom library for my students.

Economic needs: One Equity Focus School; nGet all students from low-income families early.

Place: Houston Woodland Acres Middle SchoolTexas

All: $255.31 (2x matching funds from Montgomery Family Fund)

still need: $235.31 $135.31 (we offer $68)

Ms. Self’s project description:

I want to provide science based nonfiction books to my students. Many boys prefer to read non-fiction rather than fiction. Many of them like books on science, cars, planes, spies, etc. Many of my students come to me specifically for these types of books.

I would love to have these books in my classroom library.

I know they will love, love these books! This donation would be greatly appreciated. What I love most is being able to offer books that interest them. thanks.

A donation of any size can make a big difference!

How it works now Is a charming updated version of David Macaulay how things work, which separates the technology so you don’t have to. It’s a very short video; he has nearly an hour of great speeches with nothing in between.

break out!The plague that changed history Also on the list.

We went a long way on the program when matching funds were available, and when they ran out, we went a long way again. We will keep going! Mrs. Saxon has plans for her fifth graders in Cleveland to keep plants and animals in two 2-liter soda bottles. Everything on her list is a tiny organism, even the “tank group,” which is actually a collection of 11 small sea creatures.

Item #2

project: Ecosystem Engagement and Active Learning

resource: Help me give my students a Carolina Touch Tank, fantail goldfish, mosquito fish and other aquatic items to support our use of ecosystems for learning.

Economic needs: One Equity Focus School; nGet all students from low-income families early.

Place: Nathan Hale Elementary School, Cleveland, Ohio

All: $867.05

still need: $306.99 $256.99

Lady Saxon’s item description:

My students go to school in a large Ohio area where 100% of students get free breakfast and lunch. Many of our students walk to school through neighborhoods characterized by board-covered abandoned buildings and overgrown clearings. Nonetheless, my students come to school every day with a passion for education and especially enjoy being tasked with project-based inquiry-based learning.

These materials will have an impact on the learning of my students as they especially enjoy learning opportunities that give them hands-on experience and different ways of learning.

Having the resources to build and investigate actual ecosystems will have a huge impact on my students’ learning.

My students will extend their learning beyond the textbook by participating in a STEM activity where we build an ecosystem of soda bottles of live mosquito fish, snails, worms, and aquaculturists. We’ll start by looking at each of the major organisms we’ll be dealing with, using the techniques available to us.

Next, students will contribute by donating/recycling empty 2-liter soda bottles. Students will use one of the bottles to build a glass container. Inside the terrarium, students will grow grass, mustard, and radish seeds. As insects and non-living materials are slowly introduced into the environment, they will use daily journals to record observations and measurements. They will use another soda bottle to make the aquarium part of the ecosystem. Aquatic plants and creatures will also be added and observed. Finally, students will connect containers of land and water to form a complete ecosystem.

We will use touch pool creatures and goldfish to make predictions, test theories and further expand our knowledge. This project will greatly help my students understand how all living things, big and small, are connected to each other in an ecosystem.

A donation of any size can make a big difference!

This is the best demo video I could find about the project to build.


We’ve had plenty of time to learn about mosquito fish, so here’s another creature that’s set to move to Cleveland, the pill bug.

Our main project for the last week has been completed, with great assistance from our readers,…

item #1, successful life sciences: Ms. McClellan teaches fifth grade in Fort Worthshe hopes this year her students will have the opportunity to work with real fossils and work with actual creatures.

She wrote: I’m excited to bring fossil and aquatic ecosystems into my classroom! These materials will allow me to provide hands-on experience for my students to better understand the interactions between biotic and abiotic components of the environment and what life was like before fossils were used!

DonorsChoose developed the name Equity Key School describe some The school that submitted the project. them Meet two criteria: At least 50% of students are black, Latino, Native American, Pacific Islander, or multiracial, and at least 50% of students are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch, a measure of school economic need standard measure.
