These materials will help give my students an opportunity to experience things they will not ever get to experience. This will help them to grow their science skills by allowing them to discover different science concepts on their own. My students will feel more welcomed by allowing them to use flexible seating. The students will use these items to complete science experiments and learn about some of the scientific tools that scientist use in their experiments. The Osmo will allow the students to not only learn in science but it will help integrate math into their learning. I plan to use these materials within each unit to do at least one science experiment. Science experiments are very important for my students to be able to do because it helps them to discover different ideas on their own without me having to read from a book all the time. Flexible seating also allows my students to take charge of their learning and make the choices that work best for them. During independent work times they choose a location in the classroom that works for them. Currently my students are choosing to work in a variety of locations in our room such as: at different tables, sitting under tables with clip boards, or sitting or laying on the floor with a clip board. Making sure students are comfortable is an essential component in motivating them. I have noticed amazing differences in my students when they are given a choice in their seating. They almost always make good choices about where they sit, are more engaged, and get more work completed than when they are just sitting at their desk. Thank you for helping my students be able to discover things by completing hands on experiments.
