I am one of seven first grade teachers at a title 1 school in Chantilly, Va. Our students have very limited resources but have a huge thirst for learning. They would LOVE to be able to use real binoculars. It would add an amazing layer of excitement and authenticity to their scientific observations. We have a unit on birds incorporated into our science curriculum. We also engage in many other types of outside observations. Real binoculars would be so great to take with us on our Fall walk. We could use them to look for birds and observe leaves and squirrels high up the trees. We have always been limited to using toilet paper rolls for binoculars.
