Ms. Kilmain Patriquin from Roslindale MA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Exploring Science

Help me give my students the science kits (insects, landforms, plants, butterfly lifecycle, etc.) to a fun, hands-on science learning experience.

My Project

We learn about insects, and having magnifying glasses to see the parts of the insect helps us see the details. The head, thorax, and abdomen can be seen, and students understand where the legs and antennae are connected.

The life cycle of plants, insects, and animals is studied in second grade.

Understanding how the life cycle works through hands-on experiments brings the learning alive. Students make models and drawings and write about what they have learned after watching and observing the different stages.
