Expand Our Science Knowledge

My students need a rocks and minerals kit to help them explore the differences in igneous, sedimentary, and metamorphic rocks, and several magnets kits to study force.

I teach Science to English language learners in second grade in a high poverty school.

Our school district has just adopted a new Science curriculum. I would like to support the text by providing student centered investigations and experiments. In order to make the text come alive the students need some manipulatives, hands on research materials, and supplies to support its implementation.

We need some rocks and minerals, that will allow the students to compare and contrast the properties of sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks. Magnets will support our investigations of motion and force.

Your assistance will ensure that my students are provided with hands-on experiences to support their scientific investigations.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
