My students need a class set of novels, science videos, and materials for the classroom.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
"This book is so scary!" "The captain is so mean!" "I love it!" When my students utter these words about a book, I know they are hooked.
I teach 5th grade and in the age of instant information I want to provide my students with a novel that will have them on the edge of their seats.
I think this novel will provide that opportunity. I also want my students to see and experience the wonders of Science that will be seen in the Eyewitness and Bill Nye DVDs.
I want my students to fall in love with books the way they do with video games. I want to get a class set of The True Confessions of Charlotte Doyle because the students I know who have read it, loved it. I want all my students talking about the book and asking what they would do in that situation. I am also requesting Science DVDs and teaching guides to help me provide the best information I can to my students.
This project is important because it will not only open their minds, but it will challenge their imaginations.
They will have to walk in the shoes of Charlotte Doyle, or experience what it would be like when a natural disaster strikes. These materials will help provide an enriching experience for my students.
