I am a fourth grade teacher at a Chicago Public School. I want to get more children interested in exploring concepts in Science. We are used to looking at pictures in our textbooks. We need more! The children seem so very bored. By the time we get through reading and looking at pictures, there isn't much interest in doing activities. We just don't have Science equipment.
We need more hands on tools that will wake them up to the world of discovery. I need miscroscopes and slides for my classroom. We can explore various cells and other things viewed through a miscroscope. Having these miscroscopes will open the door to the world of "I Wonder..." questions and responses.
