I teach at a school in San Francisco that I really love - I've been there 10 years! We believe in helping kids learn with a hands-on approach. Children learn by doing! We teach Science that way too, using a variety of means that includes GEMS activity kits, which are designed by the Lawrence Hall of Science at the University of California at Berkeley. These kits help children learn about many aspects of science, including the habits and habitats of living creatures like ladybugs, ants, and bees. We also have a kit that focuses on the concepts of dissolving, evaporation and crystallization. We have many of these kits, but need "refill" packs to replenish the materials used last year. Could you help us make our Science kits fresh? It would make all the difference to our public school kids...thanks in advance for you consideration!
