My Students

Students from our 4th-grade class are eager, enthusiastic and dedicated to their learning. They are a group of gifted students who come from diverse backgrounds and experiences, and despite their challenges, they are always excited to learn. They are hard workers, support each other and enjoy our science lessons.

My inquisitive and curious group of students enjoy science and are greater participants in their learning during science experiments.

My students' motivation for learning science motivates me to seek resources that support and enhance their love of learning.

My Project

Students will be learning, playing and exploring properties of magnets in our science experiment. The magnets will provide opportunities for students to explore science through hands-on activities. Hands-on activities provide engagement and interest in science. This science project exposes students to conduct an experiment using magnets, make observations and predictions to enhance their science content knowledge.

This project will enrich students' experience and feed their interest in science.

Our students are inquisitive, curious and are more engaged when lessons include a variety of hands-on activities. These supplies will help our students' learning in a fun and interactive way through experiments that give them experiences that they do not have outside of the classroom due to their socioeconomic backgrounds.
