TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
My students need reference and science fiction books to help with research and spark interest in various fields of science.
Hello All! I teach in a rural Oklahoma school full of wonderful and creative young people- grades 7-12, along with a few special trips to visit the elementary! My classes include General Science on the junior high level, along with Chemistry, Anatomy, Biology I & II, and Physical Science.
I love to encourage hands-on learning, creativity, and the connection of science to everyday life!
To do that, lots of materials are required at times- sometimes we just need stuff for students to maniuplate. Donors Choose will give you a chance to help with that and support students as they grow in science- and in their own personal lives!
We have begun building a science library in our classroom- full of reference books for research, as well as biographies and science fiction books to spark interest into all the possibilities science offers.
Books that are 'stealthily educational'- providing amazing facts or fabulous stories, while still providing the scientific materials we learn- are the goal of this project.
In the small library that has been started, my students have already exhibited an excitement for the books we have, and are hungry for more.
Reading has opened incredible windows- the few books that we have in our room have sparked discussion between the students, increased their understanding of concepts we have already covered, and even sparked interest into topics we haven't reached yet! Reading really has opened up a whole new world for my kids!
