Help me give my students practical tools and engaging literature to participate in science based lessons.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach in a small rural school. My first grade class is only 1 of 2 first grade classes on campus. This is my second year teaching a single grade classroom and it has been a wonderful experience. I never realized how much I would benefit from my students. I am creating this project in an attempt to give something back to them. As everything advances we realize that science and technology are front runners in our society.
I would like to provide my students with a fighting chance to compete with the demands of today, to set them up for success.
In order to do so I we need some help. I've always hear that it takes a village to raise a child up and I truly believe it. I want to turn my classroom into a science based, technology focused, dynamic learning experience. I want to completely challenge the status quo of what classrooms are supposed to look like. I want my students to participate authentic learning because they deserve nothing less.
The bulk of what I am requesting is focused on science. I want to use these materials to encourage and promote enthusiasm towards science. In requesting these items I not only focused on practical tools needed in the classroom to carry out hands-on experiments and observations, but I also chose some literature fit just for my students. Exposing my students to science based, interesting, and engaging literature is a strategy I would like to implement to reach my overall goal. My students are not exposed to the possibilities that exist for them to pursue a future in STEM. I would like to influence and impact their dreams. I want to push them to reach for greatness and not settle for anything less.
