About this Campaign
During third quarter, our group of approximately 130 fourth graders learn all about space and our solar system. This field trip to the planetarium would give our students the opportunity to experience firsthand what they are learning in the classroom.
Students love learning all about the Earth, moon, sun, and other planets. They enjoy differentiating rotation and revolution using movement in the classroom. However, many parts of this space unit are very abstract and can be difficult for students to understand because much of space is not visible to the naked eye.
The visit to the planetarium would allow students to make abstract connections to our classroom learning. Our students come from diverse backgrounds and many don't receive these opportunities on their own. This would be a memorable experience for the majority of our students. Requesting $1,320 plus cost reimbursement.

It has been a little over one week since we took our 4th grade students to the Planetarium and they are still talking about how much fun they had! They experienced the "Cosmic Adventure", which took them on a tour through our Solar System. They now have more connections to our Space unit in Science class. As teachers, we cannot thank you enough for your generosity. Your willingness to share your wealth, has given our students an experience they won't forget. These experiences are few and far between and the students cherish them. Here are some quotes from students after the field trip:
"Thanks again for donating so much. It got us a one way ticket to one of the most awesome places on planet Earth!"
"Thank you to the donors for donating money, so we can go on the field trip. You must be really kind. It was so fun. We couldn't go without your generosity. Your donation meant a lot to us."
Thank you again!
