My Students

My students have been (in the past) very inquisitive but also very limited with what they are able to experience. They have great ideas and questions about many things in their world around them. They want to know how things in the natural world function as well as how it relates to them directly. The problem that we always encounter is lack of supplies. My students want to learn to think outside of the box but are so limited that they can not.

My Project

The binders will assist my students with learning how to work independently to organize their work and maintain a study portfolio. The college ruled paper will be used to refill the binders to ensure that my students have paper to take notes during instructional time. The index cards are used throughout the year as a way to make flash cards as a study tool. The glue will be used to create projects to increase student creativity while learning about the human body and how chemistry is in the world all around us.

My students will appreciate having this burden lifted.
