Mrs. Downing from Seekonk MA is requesting Instructional Technology through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

BrainPOP for EcoSmart Consumer Decision-Making

My students need a subscription BrainPOP to learn more about financial literacy, mathematics, and science. They can then make financially responsible and environmentally sustainable choices for our classroom store of supplies.

My Students

Our HMS student community is composed of outstanding children who have a strong desire to learn about the world around them. They are motivated to work with others to solve problems and design solutions. Science class is an opportunity for them to explore the natural world, while also developing critical cooperation skills with their peers.

Sixth graders are still learning how to use their time, money, supplies, and energy wisely.

They are eager to learn about how the world works and are excited to be a part of it. This project will address financial literacy as it applies to school supplies and environmental impact.

My Project

In our classroom, we operate a small classroom store in which students can purchase supplies. This year, we will take this a step further and encourage students to make smart decisions about their purchases. Students will be encouraged to consider the cost of an item compared to its environmental impact. We will ask questions such as, "Is this notebook made from an environmentally responsible company?" and "Do I really need this purple gel pen, or do I simply WANT the purple gel pen?"

BrainPOP videos and games are incredibly engaging and informative and my students LOVE them!

Learning about financial literacy and environmental impact through BrainPOP will enable students to make smart decisions with their money. Consumers can make a powerful statement!

In our mini-store, which we will build together using classroom materials, lamination, and creativity, we will sell supplies that students may purchase as needed. There will be eco-friendly options as well!
