My Students

Do you remember learning about science in elementary school? Did you do fun experiments? My students would love to get some hands-on practice, experiment and explore in 3rd and 4th grade science and math!

We are a dynamic, recognized campus of inspired learners and teachers.

I teach Bilingual 3rd and 4th grade science and math at a Title One school. Most of my students are limited English proficient, at-risk, and low socioeconomic status. I know that my students are fully capable of being successful scientists and mathematicians.

My Project

In order to fully master the topics we cover in science and math, hands-on activities are essential. We need more resources to offer the opportunity to observe, investigate and apply what we have learned. I am requesting a variety of math and science resources that will make learning come alive. We would use the Cube Density kits to learn about density and buoyancy. The Light Pipe and Lightning Ball will make learning about light and electricity exciting for kinesthetic learners. The Water Cycle Model makes evaporation and condensation easy to see and understand.

Your gift can provide countless hours of hands-on science and math learning for my students now and for years to come.

These science and math materials are an invaluable resource and are critical for my students' mastery of essential skills. Please consider giving to our project. You can be a part of the education of a child.
