My 7th grade students are curious and excited about science. We explore concepts from chemistry, physics, biology, and earth science through phenomenon-based, hands-on investigations. After data analysis as part of our sense-making process, we frequently create models of various types to communicate what we have learned. The students love the process of exploring and "discovering" new things about their world rather than having "facts" told to them, and I love it when I hear those magic words "oh that's how that works!" or "That's why that happens! I always wondered about that!" In order to support this student-driven learning, we need supplies and equipment. Thanks for your help making that happen!
