I teach 5th grade science at a rural Oklahoma school. There are 107 students per day who come through my classroom. We love learning by investigating. Anytime we can put the textbooks aside and learn by doing, it is a success.
Student achievement is enhanced so much when students dig into a project and get their "hands dirty".
I love to introduce these students to ideas and possibilities that get them excited about learning. We enjoy discovering new things together daily.
Exciting, investigative projects enable my students to develop a love of learning. I believe if we develop a love of learning in children at an early age, we set them up to be successful in their future.
This DNA fingerprinting kit will allow my students to get out of a textbook and into authentic hands-on learning.
They will not only learn science skills but also learn to think outside the box and work with a team toward a common goal. I believe the skills acquired through this project would benefit students all the way to college or career. These are skills that will benefit students for a lifetime!
