Mr. Petrosky’s Classroom Edit display name

As I stated before, my students had limited to no exposure to science before moving to middle school. I will utilize the models and hands-on activities to enhance their science experience. For example, I can talk about how earthquakes are caused, but until a student experiences one, they will not really understand. With the earthquake simulator I requested, the student can visualize what is going on under the earth. The same for the rock lab I requested, until a student is able to touch a rock, the student will not understand the difference between the types of rocks. Having this equipment will greatly enhance the learning of my students. I have some exceptional kids who can be successful in science, but have not been exposed to the sciences. This equipment can give them the opportunity to experience the sciences, not just learn about them.
