Loose leaf paper is not motivating anymore. My students need something they can be proud of in order to create the best Science experiments.
My students are 6th graders in Texas.
Their ages range from 11-15 years old because many students have been retained multiple times. We are plagued by gangs and distractions are everywhere. Violence is a big factor at our school and the neighborhood is not safe.
The Scientific Method Step-by-Step Experiment boards, will help my students get excited about science in general and the science fair they will be participating in this year. A big part of our curriculum is based on the Scientific Method and being able to break down the process. These boards will allow my students to break down the process in a simple way while still preparing them greatly for the science fair.
Getting my students excited about science has been really difficult.
They continue to perform poorly on the state exam which then retains them back to middle school. Starting in 6th grade and getting them excited now will potentially increase their interest in science and subsequently perform better on their state exam in order to move on to high school.
