Mrs. Rivera from San Tan Valley AZ is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Anatomy & Physiology Skeleton

My students need a skeleton for hands on learning in the classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

"Learning is more effective when it is an active rather than a passive process," Euripides quotes. To be able to gain a full understand of Anatomy & Physiology students need to see 3-D models and experience hands on the look and feel of bone.

At our school we have a large percentage of our students will see much more success in anatomy and physiology by being able to teach with hands on learning.

There is a need to make high school courses relevant to real life and for students and parents to see there is a need for them to have science as part of their academics. Approximately 50% of students at Combs High School receive free/reduced lunch. Our district for the last two elections has not passed and we have recently had to make a deduction in the amount of supply we can purchase to offset the funding loss. Anatomy & Physiology is a new course started this school year at our high school. We are in need of supplies and lab materials to make Anatomy & Physiology a more hands-on course.

My Project

By providing students access to anatomy models allows students to learn kinesthetically through hands on lessons. The models can be divided into small groups for shared use and students will be able to hear, see, and touch for mastery of unit topics.

This donation will have a large impact on starting up a new program at our school.

Students who value education and are college bound will be better prepared for college and many of them will be better prepared to start their career in the medical field.
