I teach fifth grade math and science at a small school in Marion, NC where 58% of students receive free or reduced lunch. I am a first year teacher with lots of enthusiasm and love for teaching. My goal as a teacher is to provide my students with hands-on learning experiences which my students can relate to their everyday lives. As a first year teacher I have limited resources to work with, so planning hands-on science activities is not always easy. A resource that my students could greatly benefit from is a GEMS Kit for Aquatic Habitats. GEMS stands for Great Explorations in Math and Science. These science kits, provided by Carolina Biological Supply Company are a leading resource for innovative science and mathematics education. With this science kit my students would work in groups to set up a model of a living pond in the classroom. Then they would use hands-on activities to study the dynamic interaction of plants and animals in an ecosystem. This experience would make a significant and measurable impact on the students in my 5th grade classroom.
