Mrs. Rose from Chicago IL is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe!

My students need 10 copies of "The Elements" A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe."

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Students have a very hard time visualizing all the elements in the known universe. This incredible and beautifully illustrated book gives a detailed description of each element as well as a stunning photograph. The presentation of the book is visually captivating and peaks student interest.

I teach at a large public school in IL.

I teach 150 sophomore students each day. We are lucky to have a very culturally diverse student body who come from working class families. My students are very self-motivated, respectful, and hard-working. They deserve to have the best education possible because they are bound to do great things in the future!

My Project

Having ten copies of this book would enable my students to work in groups while exploring the pictures and information about each element. It will enrich students learning by engaging the visual learners as well as the artistic students. Additionally, students will be able to do research on various elements with the aid of this book.

This project is so important because it is an opportunity to invest students' interest in chemistry and the world around them.

The books are so rich in content and visual appeal that they will surely intrigue even the most reluctant student. The black pages and vivid colors of the elements spark wonder and curiosity in the reader. I believe these books will leave a lasting impression on my students and will better them for the duration of the course.
