The use of hands-on science activities and supporting reading material is a staple in my classroom. Each week, students attend the science lab to reinforce the science content. In class, students read articles and books to enhance critical thinking, understand scientific vocabulary, and recognize patterns and relationships. Unfortunately, some of the articles are not fully aligned to our state standards or are written on a level that is difficult for students to understand. Additionally, students do not have the opportunity to engage in more inquiry-based and hands-on activities within the classroom. The science lab provides students with awesome activities; however, students are only scheduled to attend once per week. By having materials in the classroom, students will be able to engage in small group laboratory and learning activities and read text that is more appropriate. By donating to our project, you will not only help increase student interest in taking on the role of scientists, but you will also help to increase their likelihood of choosing STEM related careers.
