My students are very creative, and they enjoy creating hands-on projects in which they print photos which replicate our science topics. When creating science projects, it dramatically enhances the clarity of the scientific topic of study when students can complete their class projects in living color. Having a color printer would help students create better representations of the natural environment. Our school is a Title I school, and our community was devastated by Hurricane Florence last year. Due to flooding from the hurricane. We still have some students who are displaced from their homes. Many of the families are still recovering from the devastation of Hurricane Florence. It would be so rewarding if my students could create projects in living color this year!
As we proceed to meet the science standards for our grade level, my students will be creating several in-class projects throughout the school year. We study weather, genetics, ecosystems, force and motion, etc. The students' learning would greatly be enhanced if they could complete their in-class projects with living-color pictures. Last year, our students studied various animals, and they printed animal pictures in black and white. A few students were able to complete their projects with living-color pictures because they have a color printer at home. I am concerned about the other students who would benefit from having the equal opportunity to create living color pictures to enhance their learning. My heart goes out to all students, and I so desire for all students to have the opportunity to be able to create their projects in color!
