My students need hands-on science specimen centers and sifters for our mixtures units.
In our science classrooms our students are engaged, excited, and inquisitive! If you walk into our science lab you will see our students observing models or live organisms, having scientific conversations with their fellow scientists and recording their findings in their science journals.
Our students are hands-on active learners.
They learn best when the science is in front of them. Reading science text, though important, is a small portion of how we design the lessons for our students. We want them to experience science concepts so in depth that they can write their own science book in their journal. Our science program is growing stronger every day. We are growing our resources, our teachers, and our students though intentional lesson plans that make a real world connection to our kids.
Our students will use the hands on specimen centers during their adaption unit. Students are to observe the structures on animals and identify their functions. They are to think about how those structures help it survive in their environment. Having the different specimen centers will give our students models of organisms from different environments. This will allow them to compare the structures and determine why those organisms are suited for their environment. We also have a limited amount of sifters at our campus for our mixtures unit. In order for us to do small group investigations I need to have resources for all my teachers during that unit. They will use the sifters when learning about mixtures and how they keep their same properties. Students are then asked to separate the mixture without using their hands. This is where the science tools, the sifter, comes into play. They will have to design a plan using the tools available to separate the materials in the mixture.
This will have a strong impact on our campus because we are in need of these resources.
Our students don't have to watch the teacher do the science, they can work in groups and investigate for themselves because they have the tools. That is how we like to do science at our campus. Putting the science back into the kids hands and letting the learning take place.Read More
