My students need science lab materials. I chose the Science Tools Supply center, the Magnet Activity Laboratory and the Physical Science Activities Lab Kits because they provide specific activities for the new STAAR Standards.
My students live in a low income, high risk area that have never had exposure to an actual science laboratory. They are eager to learn and very inquisitive children when given the opportunity to participate and engage in an actual science experiment.
I love my students and relish the opportunity to see their eyes light up when we are doing science experiments.
They get so excited when they actually get to perform the experiment themselves.
Science can be so exciting.
My students are in dire need of science lab equipment to perform hands on experiments. These materials will allow my students to use a variety of tools and methods to conduct science inquiry. The new standards also require my students to use scientific practices during laboratory and outdoor investigations. My students will have the ability to comprehend these standards better by actual hands on investigation.
My students will have an opportunity to use critical thinking and scientific problem solving to make informed decisions by analyzing, evaluating and perform repeated investigations to problem solve.
My students will appreciate any help provided. Our first rule in science class is to always wear goggles, so of course we need safety goggles. My students will explore light reflection and refraction using flashlights and the lens and prism sets. The physical science activity lab along with the magnifying glasses will allow students to explore the different types of physical properties that exist in rocks. My students will be able to explore the outside world around them in my classroom with these science kits thanks to you!
