I teach 5th grade math and science to some AWESOME children in a Title 1 school. We encourage our students to show grit, gratitude, and growth. I know with the new science standards a Trippensee Lighted Planetarium would help my students better understand the earth science standards. I want to provide my students with the tools they deserve. We would greatly appreciate any amount you are willing and able to give in order for us to purchase a planetarium for our classroom.
This planetarium will help my students better understand the new rigorous abstract science standards. The planetarium will provide them with a hands on model to use to draw conclusions about the effect of Earth’s rotation and revolution and test their predictions. Understanding space is a hard concept and hard for 10 year olds to understand, so any concrete example I can find will help my students on the quest for success. Please help me if you are able to provide my students with an excellent tool they deserve to have. Any donation is greatly appreciated by my students and me.
