Mr. Youngblood from La Mesa CA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students the chance to experiment with density in a way that helps them SEE what the difference between mass and volume means.
Our school boundaries crosscut the advantaged and disadvantaged portions of our city. Multiple languages are spoken by students and parents as we have a true melting pot of cultures represented on campus. In the past four years, we have seen an increase in students from multi-family housing units and with special education needs. Given that current census data considers Arabic speaking immigrants as 'White/Caucasian' for demographic purposes, our percent of White students is at forty-four percent; however, most of our new English Learners now speak Arabic or Chaldean instead of Spanish. We have fourteen hundred students who are eligible for the Free or Reduced-Price Lunch program and our School Site Council approved for us to be a Title One schoolwide program.
Our chemistry department has had to work harder than in years past to help our students recognize the difference between mass and weight. The concept of the mole and mass is not easily understood, and for reasons beyond our control, our students are not coming to us with this prerequisite knowledge as they enter our chemistry classes.
Please help us acquire a half class set of density rods to help students see hands-on what the difference between mass and volume means when working with different materials (elements).
This grant will be shared by 4 classes as our school's department set of density demonstrations is no longer complete or useful. - Did I mention that our school is celebrating its centennial? While our science supplies are not that old, most of our department lab sets do date from the 50's and we are trying to update and modernize as much as we can afford on a limited budget. Please help us share this basic concept so that we can help our students explore the structure of the atom and nature of science.
