Have you ever seen a child's face when he/she gets to experience something for the very first time? As a 4th Grade Science Teacher I can tell you that the experience is amazing. It would be great if all 90 of my students had the chance to love what they are learning. Not only is it an eye opening experience but it also gets children motivated to learn. I am trying to fund a proposal for my low-income students to learn more in depth about plants and animals. I don't just want my students to learn about these topics I want them to be actively engaged in them. These books are filled with puzzles, open-ended activities, and experiments. Students develop problem-solving skills by using the worksheets to plan, hypothesize, predict, experiment, test, and analyze results. With the help of the included activities I can teach my students the fundamentals of science and motivate them to learn. Shouldn't we all have the opportunity to show off our "green thumbs" and other aspects of science?
