Earth Science Demonstrations for 6th Grade Students

My students need a Fault Demonstration Model and Physical Science Activity Book.

Middle School students learn so much better with hands-on and visual models of unfamiliar concepts. Physical and Earth Science can be fascinating! My 6th grade Science students are in a high-poverty public school that has been academically under-achieving in state standards. My kids will benefit from educational opportunities outside of a textbook.

Our students do not have textbooks they can take home for the school year, and are high-need students. A large portion of our students are basic or below basic on standardized testing. But they are interested in science! I have seen that hands-on and visual models for my students are the best teaching methods.

This model of faults will teach my students several important state standards they need to learn, and will also be a jumping off point for other physical science and earth science concepts. It is a manipulative that can be demonstrated for them, and that students may use to repeat for themselves.

Your assistance will make a difference in the education of many students - about 100 this school year, and many more in the future years! :o> Please help me reach every one of our bright but deprived children!
