My students need solar glasses, a space exploration kit and a space measurement lab to engage in the earth science curriculum and to have fun while learning it!
Isn't it intriguing that the world around us is constantly moving, constantly surrounding us, yet we often forget to look at the stars, see the magnetic phenomena on the sun or analytically critique astronomical distances and tools?
I am honored to teach a large number of the Deaf students in Utah.
The students come from families throughout Utah to our school to be with their Deaf peers. In addition to providing this close-knit community, my students are as eager (or more?) to learn about the earth and to experiment. The school is a myriad of students, many of whom don't get to play and interact with the celestial and solar world around us. With these kits and solar glasses, we'll be able to track sunspots, talk about the photosphere, and uncover some of the mysteries of the universe.
These items will allow my earth science students to get outside and actively learn by measuring, observing and doing; some of the most important skills a scientist can develop. Each of these items allow the student to observe the natural world and to utilize creative thinking to understand how our world functions. These students will earn a better understand of the universe around us, and be able to wrap their minds around some big scientific concepts. The Space Measurement lab incrementally challenges students to measure in increasingly difficult manners, to challenge their thinking and to help them develop creative thinking strategies. The sun glasses will allow the students to actively observe the center of their universe, rather than just look at pictures or discuss it from within the classroom.
This project will make a big difference because it will empower the students to think about their world, think of ways to improve it, and actively measure and acquire the skills to strategically map out incredible distances between the sun and celestial objects.
These items could provide an amazing opportunity for these students, one that won't be forgotten!Read More
