Ms. Saltos from Bayside NY is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Elevating & Generating Excitement for Science Through Games

My students need these school supplies, including puzzles, timers and lapboards, to create a more enrichment-filled student-centered learning environment focused on hands-on science.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

What was the most interesting science activity you remember doing? By bringing science to life through hands-on engagement in fun and educational activities, my students will enjoy science and retain the information in a meaningful way.

My students consist of 6th graders that attend a public middle school in New York City.

Being "new" to the school, they are eager to learn and strive to do well. Their educational background range from special education in an ICT or Integrated Co-teaching environment to regular classes to honor students.

My Project

Imagine a classroom where all of the students are raising their hands and eagerly working cooperatively to solve a scientific problem by brainstorming or performing an investigation! These selected resources will allow for more group work focused on creative games. Students will learn team-building skills as well as develop strategies to reinforce important science concepts.

Donations will make a meaningful impact on how my students will learn to work together for a common goal, as needed in their future careers and in social interactions.

In addition, over 160 students will discover different ways they can express themselves as their interest in science continues to peak.
