Creativity is very important in any subject, but it can help bring Science and Social Studies to life. As the fifth grade Science and Social Studies teacher at my school, I want to get the students involved in these subjects in a hands-on way. Instead of just looking at maps, I want them to create maps. Instead of just reading about the solar system, I want them to create their own solar systems. In order to accomplish this, I need materials for the students to get creative, such as colored pencils, markers, crayons, scissors and glue. These materials will be used throughout the year for a wide variety of projects by my three fifth grade classes. KIPP Bayview Academy, where I teach, is a public charter school. We are a college prep middle school in our second year and will be adding a new grade beginning in July. It is my wish that all three fifth grade classes could use these wonderful supplies by the beginning of summer school, so I am requesting enough materials for three class sets. Thank you!
