My Students

Hello! Please help me get a science center in place for my PreK students. My 3 to 5-year-old students are energetic, playful and eager to learn. My school is part of a large urban district that has many children living in lower socioeconomic households. Many of these students face challenges at home and bring those struggles with them to school. I teach a wide variety of students including those who are English language learners, those with special needs, struggling learners, and those exceeding grade level expectations.

My Project

I am asking for supplies to create a science center in my classroom. These discovery science kits/supplies invite children to discover color, light, magnetism and more! Each kit comes with 6 photo activity cards that let students conduct experiments on their everything they need for each activity—from ramps and balls to shakers and bells. A complete set includes 6 sets. In addition to the discovery kits, I am asking for other science tools that will allow my students to explore the world around them.

Kids learn by doing and hands-on science encourages kids to discover things on their own.

Science helps them use their senses: observe, ask questions, touch, smell and experiment on their own. By using the various tools in the science center (microscope, magnifying glasses, goggles, etc.), they can do just that. I hope you will consider donating so that my students can have experiences that will help contribute to their growth and learning.
