My Students

I have wonderful 7th and 8th grade science students. I teach at a Title I or low-income high poverty school. With so many obstacles in their personal lives, many students often come to school without a pen or a pencil. In order to make sure the students get the maximum amount of learning in science, I like to provide my students with hands-on activities that make learning be fun. My students are creative individuals who like to showcase what they have learned.

My Project

The materials will help students be part of a new way of learning. Technology is so important in education and the headphones will allow students to listen to standard aligned videos as well as take part of virtual labs. Owl pellets will be used as a way for students to apply learning of Life science. Colored pencils, paper, tape and the rest of materials will be used for student creation and application of knowledge. Education is very important so we want students to be present as much as possible which can be made possible by the hand sanitizer and Kleenex.
