Mrs. C. from Brooklyn NY is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Digging For Rocks

My students need an excavating kit and book on rocks and minerals for science.

My Students

I have some wonderful students waiting to excavate some special rocks. My students love to find out more about science in a hands-on way and I would love to give them that chance.

I am the science teacher with wonderful young scientists.

We are a special needs school in need of new resources. My classes are so eager to learn but they need new materials for building up their knowledge of science. If children have fun learning they retain more information.

My Project

A big part of our curriculum is on Earth Science. We are studying rocks, minerals and the Earth. I would love to have 9 classroom sets of "Prospector's Mystery Rock Science" and "Earth Science Books for grades 5-8". These materials will give my classes a great hands-on look at our science curriculum.

My students would make great excavators in class.

We don't need to go out into the field. Please help us bring this project to our classrooms. Thank you so much for reading my proposal.
