Students benefit greatly from hands-on experience, especially in science. Unfortunately, it becomes difficult to supply the materials each year. I teach science in an elementary school and I find the children are very motivated when it comes to doing experiments. Students make their own circuits with flashlight bulbs, wires and batteries, and explore the properties of light with flashlights and prisms, so I constantly need batteries. I also allow them to discover the properties of magnets for themselves and this becomes difficult when groups have to share magnets. Lastly, to grasp the concepts of food chains, I have them dissect owl pellets which we always eventually run out of. By doing these hands-on activities, the children are better able to grasp the concepts for themselves. I've encountered former students who tell me that they still remember their elementary school science experiences with me fondly, and how much they enjoyed learning.
