Ms. Pierce from Star City AR is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Constructing is Work

My students need 2 sets each of 4 K'Nex Building Sets, including simple machines, gears and wheels, along with 2 sets of Legos.

  • $570 goal

This project expired on February 10, 2010.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Fifth grade science class in a high poverty location hope to construct simple machines to demonstrate and study work.

My students are residing in a non-industry, poverty stricken community near the delta and do not get a lot of experience with the concept of "work".

The multiple machine kits that I have selected would easily allow the students hands-on experience with simple machines to aide their understanding.

By becoming our partner, you will provide us the materials necessary to teach this difficult concept to these deserving and deprived children.
