My students need one set of Learning Science Activity Tubs - Grade 4-6.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I am trying expose my students to high interest science and math activities (STEM) that will improve their math skills, reading skills, and increase their interest in science. I want to motivate them to explore what it might be like to have a career in science or engineering.
I teach in a Title I community school where most of our students come from a high poverty area, and 85% of our students are on free or reduced lunch.
Over 70% of our students are Hispanic where Spanish is spoken in the home. I am a looping teacher who teaches fourth and fifth grade science and math. I start out with my classes in fourth grade and "loop up" with the same classes in fifth grade which helps build consistent relationships with my students and parents.
For this project I am requesting one set of Learning Science Activity Tubs - Grade 4-6. My students will use these hands-on activities to complete experiments and explore concepts in depth. Using theses kits will allow my students to understand the scientific process and make concepts easy to grasp. They will be able to use models to simulate situations and get a first hand look. They will be able to experiment and create extension ideas.
My students will be able to explore the science and math behind the world around them with these project based STEM activities.
It will change the way my students' think about science and math and, hopefully, inspire them to pursue opportunities in science and engineering.
