These materials will enable the students to visualize real-life plant and animal life cycle models that they can HOLD and will add to the text and experiments to be done. Enlarged life size models without the danger. What a better way to investigate food chains than the regurgitated owl pellets that contains the bones of the creature that had been eaten for lunch. The students will love dissecting the owl pellets. The students will be able to explore forces, mass, friction, speed, with the hall cars. The students will love racing the cars to determine if mass plays a part in the outcome. Then, the experiment will be done again to determine if surface and friction play a part in the outcome. Each year magnets are broken as little hands experiment with the forces of magnets. These magnet supplies will replace those that little hands wore out. Students enjoy the forces of attraction and repulsion seen by simple magnets. To explore fossils, the plaster of Paris will be prepared to unveil a "Fossil Find" as well as create a mold and cast of a fossil. By doing these experiments, students get a deeper understanding of how fossils are formed. These materials will be essential in bringing to life the science curriculum and to incorporate hands-on learning for my first classroom.
