Mrs. Laymon from Atkins AR is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Crazy Fun In Science

My students need a conduction experiment kit, electricity exploration kit, and chemical refills for element experiments.

My Students

Learning about elements of science can be crazy fun for all students.

My students are excited to investigate all concepts about science.

However, since the majority of my students are from low income families, much needed supplies cannot be purchased. Over 70% of my students are on the free and reduced lunch program. With other expenses for additional supplies, my students are not able to afford to help with manipulative.

My Project

The materials purchased for the chemical refill experiments will be used to help determine different reactions when those elements are combined. The conduction and electricity experiment kits will provide hands-on enriched learning that will allow the students to use inquiry methods to formulate answers by their on investigations.

These donations will allow opportunities to use higher-order thinking skills to determine outcomes and to draw conclusion.

These students will be more of the educator and the teacher more of a facilitator.
