My students need gardening supplies such as seeds and a root box for a class science fair project.
Science is a subject that should fill students with wonder. Too often, students feel dread in a science classroom, and I want to introduce them to that feeling of wonder again.
As a new teacher in a Title I school, I want the very best for my students.
My science class requires students to participate in a Science fair and to maintain a Science binder. Many of the students in the school are low income, and I want to be able to supply my students with the materials they need, to not only learn Science, but also to grow as a confident and unique individual.
My students will be able to grow plants in a variety of settings, see how to grow things in a more green manner, and how to grow plants they can rely on in their own homes. Additionally, it will teach students to inquire about why plants grow in a variety of conditions. I have requested supplies such as seeds, potting soil, a hydroponics growing system, planters where roots are visible, and other gardening resources. These materials are a great way to show students how plants grow in different environments and how a variety of plants need varying conditions to survive.
My students need a chance to do hands-on science.
With this opportunity, students will be able to see how plants grow, develop, and produce the food we all need to survive. All of this can occur with your help.
