My Students

Resources are the only thing holding back my seventh and eighth grade science students this year. These kids are creative young designers with outstanding ideas just waiting to bring them to life

Our new STEM magnet school is full of young engineers and scientists.

The inner city students are limited in their experiences but marked with bounding imagination. Their problem solving abilities continue to astound me, and I am proud of the way they overcome their limitations and show growth with each new design challenge.

My Project

Science diagrams and labels are much more fun in color. Students in our class study body systems, genetics and reproduction. Much of their work includes making precision drawings with descriptions and correct terminology.

Using nice materials for the projects gives kids the enthusiasm that they need to take responsibility for their learning.

Some favorite diagrams include a skeletal system drawing for the day of the dead. Students draw a skeleton in the likeness of a loved one who has passed then label all of the bones. Kids also love tracing the oxygenated blood flow through a cardiovascular diagram. We display these posters through our room and hallway for others to share.
