Mrs. Johnson from Haleiwa HI is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Electricity is Exciting!

My students need Electricity Discovery kits to experience hands on learning of how complete circuits work because trying to understand a circuit from an image in a textbook is no comparison to building your own circuit.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My 5th grade students are energetic and full of curiosity! In a class of 22 students, 16 of them are boys. This active group needs a lot of variety to keep them engaged. Relatable, interactive and hands-on learning opportunities will help all of my students succeed this year.

My students are hungry to learn!

I want to feed that hunger with a lot of interesting, hands on learning opportunities that that will allow them to be a part of the lesson and step away from the basic pencil and paper worksheet. Sparking their curiosity with a variety of learning tools will open the door to lots of learning this year!

My Project

Electric circuit kits will make a difference in my students learning by providing them a hands on learning experience to help them understand the process of how circuits work. These Electricity Discovery Kits will provide the students the opportunity to relate their learning in the classroom to the real world around them.

Hands on learning is the best way to learn science!

Learning about circuits from an image in a textbook is so difficult, but these kits will allow the students to experience what they are reading, so that they can make those connections necessary to fully understand the content.
