I teach in a low-income/high poverty school where 100% of the students are receiving free breakfast and lunch. My students come from families for whom education is a second thought. Their families are more concerned about putting food on the table and aren't able to purchase supplies for school.
My students are naturally inquisitive and have a deep desire to learn.
They are constantly asking to be taught more and more. I'm not asking for a handout for my students, I just want them to have an even playing field. They are like sponges soaking up information.
My students will be able to use the activity tubs to develop a concrete understanding of gravity, energy, and friction as they experiment with forces and learn how they affect motion.
The Learning Science Library will reinforce and expand on the theme of force and motion.
I am always looking for ways to motivate my students to read more. These books with high-interest titles will help students grasp the concepts in an engaging manner.
The Can Do! Science game will be extremely useful when reviewing concept information and when preparing for standardized testing. Students are always more engaged when learning is fun!
