Mrs. Davis from Russellville AR is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Experience Sea Floor Spreading

My students need 4 Sea Floor Spreading Simulator Kits.

  • $630 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Have you ever wondered what happens at our last frontier in the depths of the ocean on the sea floor? My 6th grade science class lives in a high poverty area that is located far from any sea or ocean. Many students have never had the experience of seeing the ocean. Most students coming into 6th grade have little knowledge of the sea floor or what occurs there.

I want to provide a hands on experience for students who will never be able to travel to the depths of the ocean floor.

The experience of the Sea Floor Simulation Kits will bring to life what happens on the sea floor; landforms caused by internal forces and how volcanic activity renews the earth.

Your generous contribution will provide these young minds with the opportunity to experience a simulation that will hopefully arouse an interest in science that will last a lifetime.
