My students need 2 laptops to help them explore and discover earth science.
The ability to use a computer to seek out information, share ideas, and explore the world is essential in today's society. My students are eager to do just that, but our school lacks the technology to allow them this opportunity.
My students are curious, eager, and hardworking 4th grade scientists.
They do not hesitate to ask LOTS of questions. They come from many different countries and speak several different languages, but their passion for science and learning is universal. The neighborhood they live in has its challenges and our school can't always afford the necessities. Despite these obstacles, students come into my science lab on the first day of school with high hopes. They know that science is fun and exciting, and they are ready to jump right in.
My classroom is a place of exploration and discovery. I encourage my students to take risks, asks questions, and find answers on their own. We are about to jump into our Earth Science unit. This is a particularly engaging and exciting unit for my students. Living in a big city, they do not often get a chance to see the beauty and power of nature first hand. During this unit, we will be investigating as many concepts as we can through hands-on exploration. However, there are many concepts that are very difficult to bring to life in the classroom, such as hurricanes, layers of the Earth, and volcanic eruptions.
My students need 2 laptops to help them explore and discover earth science. These computers would allow the students to research, watch, and interact with science concepts in a meaningful way.
You can never truly measure and quantify the impact you have on a student's life.
However, when you walk into my classroom and see the work the kids are able to do because they have the resources made possible by your generosity, the potential for greatness radiates.
