Help me give my students the joy of partaking in hands on science experiments. To actually see a caterpillar complete its cycle or look through a microscope the first time would be lifetime experiences for these students.
Our students are from low income single parent and multi-family homes. Some have parents who care about them but are working two jobs trying to keep their heads above water. The children are many times the caregivers for younger siblings. Students ages range from 5 to 12 years old, to young to be left on their own. They come to school every day knowing that they will be taken care of for this part of the day. This is their safe place. Education is the key for them to ever know success, joy, peace and happiness in the future. They deserve the chance to be successful and show the world how smart, funny or courageous they are truly are.
By donating these materials you will make a difference in all these students learning and possible their lives by providing them with the most unforgettable experiences.
Can you imagine looking through a microscope for the first time or seeing a butterfly burst through its cocoon or building a simple machine that really works.?
These students may struggle in reading and math but when it comes to science they just bloom. The butterfly kits will be in each classroom from K through third grade as the students monitor the caterpillars' progress. The microscope, simple machines kits and other items will all be used in the labs as we explore our way through this school year!
