Help me give my students a library of engaging books to read that will motivate and interest them to delve deeper into topics that we are learning about in the classroom, and projects they are completing.
The diverse students in our rural K-8 country school are eager to learn! They ask engaging questions and are curious to learn more. In particular, my 5th - 8th-grade science students love independent, student-driven projects, researching, and presenting their work.
Currently, they have very limited access to engaging, non-fiction books that will expand their curiosity about the subjects in science that interest them the most.
They enjoy reading the magazines and other materials that I have available, but I would love to expand the selection to include books on a wide variety of science topics that can be checked out to them.
My classroom lacks a good reading library of non-fiction science books that are engaging and high interest for students. I am committed to building up a library for my students that they can use to read more deeply into topics that we are learning in class and to support their student projects.
This year, they will be working together in small groups on a service project around the issues of plastic pollution.
We will be learning about the impacts of pollution on our oceans, and we will be using the albatross as a case example. Many of the selected books support this topic.
Thank you for your consideration of this donation request! Supporting student's natural curiosity by providing a library of interesting books has been a goal for my classroom, and this will help achieve this goal!
