My students need a mini-kit terrarium and the It's Alive! Characteristics of Organisms Module to help bring science and exploration to life! Students will use the material to explore and differentiate living and nonliving organisms in our world.
Our first day of school fell on August 21, 2017, which also happened to be the big solar eclipse. We got to provide our student body with solar eclipse viewing glasses and as a school community, we all got to go outside and experience this epic event together.
What an awesome way to kick off the school year!
Watching our students get so excited about being able to experience something so amazing got me excited to be able to provide them with hands-on activities in and out of our classroom.
This year I have a group of 28 diverse learners who are beyond excited to learn and explore through every way possible. We have a class of artists, scientist, mathematicians, readers, and inventors. As a teacher, my goal is to continue to inspire them to explore all subjects and fall in love with learning the way I did.
Students will get to work together in small groups and collaborate through different center investigations in hopes of creating a fun and engaging learning environment. Being able to physically manipulate and experiment with materials helps bring science to life.
Students in my class are thrilled any time they get to challenge themselves through a new science exploration.
This year a big goal and focus I have had is helping students become explorers and investigators through hands-on and engaging science activities. These materials will allow students to continue to investigate living and nonliving things and explore that all living things are organisms with basic needs.
I am very excited to get hands-on with the It's Alive! Science Module in my class. My students love to work in small collaborative groups and engage in discussions to answer questions. Students will get to understand how diverse living and nonliving organisms are and identify basic needs all living things have.
Terrariums are always a hit! I am excited to be able to create an in class kit with the Mini-Terrarium Kit for students to further be able to explore living and nonliving. Both items that I have requested will help enhance our science core and interactive in class instruction!
