Field Investigators Finding Creatures!

My Students

I teach sixth-grade science in a small rural Tennessee town. We are a high poverty area, and many of my students do not always have the same opportunities as students in urban areas.

My students are inquisitive, eager to learn, and love hands-on activities!

The experiments we do in science class provide opportunities for them to apply what they are learning. As a teacher, it is my responsibility to expand my students' horizons. Providing them with hands-on activities and the resources to conduct them enables me to do just that.

My Project

Science is about making observations and asking questions. This project will provide my students with collection containers so they can bring insects, soil samples or water samples from home to explore and share. The collection containers will enable them to collect and observe insects around our school. The soil sieves will allow them to sort out the various types of soil in a sample and analyze the soil for plant and insect life potential.

My students are inquisitive and want to connect science with their own community.

These resources will provide them with the items they need to collect science in their own backyards!
