Mrs. Coppens | Grade 2/3


We are going to start creating our model for an animal sanctuary in Ukraine.  For this project, we are building an interpretative center, a staff building and a large outdoor space for five different animals that live naturally in Ukraine.  Students will need a variety of materials to create their models of the sanctuary.  If you have any of these items lying around, we would greatly appreciate any donations. 

Supplies needed:

Easy to cut cardboard

Toilet paper rolls/paper towel rolls


Milk cartons

Plastic bottles

Popsicle sticks

Styrofoam containers

Thank you so much for your support!


Happy Friday!
