Project Description As a project-based charter school in Sparta, WI, our students (grades 6-12) continually look for ways to work with other classrooms in the district and community to share ideas, experiences, and knowledge. One student (Liz) is looking at working with the Montessori classroom (first grade through 4th grade). This classroom incorporates microscopes later in the year and Liz would like to lead those students using BugScope to boost interest and enthusiasm in science. In order to do that, I would like her to learn how to operate the scope and know ahead of time how to plan her interaction with the students based on her experience running the scope. If this unit works out well for the Montessori classroom, Liz is interested in taking her expertise to the 1st grade classrooms throughout the district during their unit on bugs. This will be a great fit for those classrooms and boost enthusiasm for science district wide.
