A Chromebook for Every Student!

My students need three Chromebooks so that every student will have access to their own computer.

My Students

My students are curious about science topics and full of questions. They are especially excited when they see a lab set up in the back of the room. Their eyes brighten as they exclaim, "Are we doing lab today?" Lab days are special days and especially now as many are still dealing with being displaced by the wildfires.

Seven children from our site and four teachers lost their homes in the fires.

Many others were evacuated for up to two weeks as the fire raged on. Our schools were closed for three weeks during the clean-up effort. We have worked hard to catch up on our curriculum and return to a sense of normalcy.

My Project

In the science department, we are moving away from having students complete traditional paper and pencil tests. Students are demonstrating what they know about scientific concepts in creative slide shows or animated videos that they create. This has worked especially well with English language learners that struggle to understand multiple question style tests.

We use our Chromebooks for research, data collection and project presentations.

This year we were able to purchase lab tools that integrate with the Chromebooks. These new tools are giving kids the opportunity to collect data like true scientists. The new mice are important because it is difficult to manipulate the online graphing tools with the track pad.
