I am a fifth grade teacher in a self-contained classroom who wants to set up a place for my students to work on our science investigations. Because I have 32 students and we use lots of materials for our hands-on science investigations, I wanted to use an area of my room that does not get utilized very often. In my classroom, I am fortunate to have a built-in counter along one wall. I want to use this space as a lab area for science. The problem is that there is no place to sit. I need help purchasing stools for students to sit on. With the stools, students can sit at the counter and work on science without having to bring all of the materials to their desks. Because of the limited space, I will only need 10 stools. Students will use the space at different times in the day. During the year, we build levers, pulleys, inclined planes, water clocks, and even sun-dials while learning science. It would be great if we had a space to do all of this and more!
