Our school is limited on resources to teach the New Generation Science Standards. The materials(NGSS Grade 4 - Complete Collection) will help kids master the NGSS. The books will not only be available for students to read in our class library but will serve as our anchor texts in each unit. Currently, we have no text that can be used in Science. Quality text can help students appreciate science and engineering practices. In addition, connecting our science lessons to relevant text deepens the understanding for our students. The transfer of energy tool will give students the opportunity to do some hands on activities. These may not be a lot of materials, but they would make a huge difference for my students. The donation to this project will help my students become scientists in the classroom. My goal is for my students to embrace science. Science, for the most part, has been taught to them directly from old text books. Using the books as anchor texts will allow us to learn the content but at the same time allow us to plan hands-on activities.
