I teach third grade at Swift Elementary in Chicago in the Edgewater neighborhood. Edgewater is an extremely diverse area and the students in my class are from various backgrounds, making our class a melting pot of ethnicities. I had 14 English Language Learners and over ten different languages spoken in my classroom alone. Most of my students say that Science is their favorite subject because they love experiments and learning new things. I believe that children are born scientists. They come to my room with a curiosity about things and a desire to discover on their own. I am hoping to encourage this natural love of Science and discovery. My school has just adopted the Foss Science curriculum, but has very limited funding to purchase the science materials that come with this curriculum, which makes it a challenge to allow the children to experience all of the new concepts we learn. We only have two Foss Kits to share with all four third grade teachers! With this in mind, I am asking for Foss Kits for each unit that I can have in my classroom. This kit would allow the children to take the materials to their desks and, in a group, work with these items to experiment and draw their own conclusions about the things we are learning. The resources I am requesting will allow my students to truly experience science and help to give them a clearer picture of the things we learn.
