Celebrating Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

Celebrate Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month

This project is a part of the Hispanic & Latinx Heritage Month celebration because it supports a Latino teacher or a school where the majority of students are Latino.

My Students

My students are inner-city students with a predominantly Hispanic background. They are the nicest students I have ever taught! They are eager to learn and every year we make great progress.

This year, I am focusing on improving my students' learning and social and emotional skills.

To be happier, they need creative supports that decrease their anxiety. They need an environment that shows love and care to encourage them to do their very best each and every day. They need basic supplies in the classroom to be confident. This is my dream!

My Project

Please help me to give my students the equipment and books to make their own essential oils.

Through helping my students learn about how to make essential oils, they can learn about chemistry and help them to understand more what do chemists do.

Students will learn how to do simple chemical distillation and make essential oils from oranges, lemons, and other simple ingredients, and then turn these into household soaps, lotions, and other basic items. I loved doing chemistry experiences when I was in school and want to pass it on.

Grades 6-8
