Mrs. M. from Union KY is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Have Lab....Need Supplies

My students need a set of general biology slides so that they can look at what we are learning about, making the concepts more concrete.

I teach biology at a brand new high school in Kentucky. We were added due to overcrowding at the other three high schools in the district. We literally are starting from scratch. The district does not have money to buy the non-essentials due to budget cuts at the state level. Without outside donations, our students have to go without items that will enrich their education.

My students are always asking to go into our lab. Unfortunately, I don't have everything that a science lab should have. We should be looking in our microscopes all the time, but we don't have anything to look at! My students need to be able to see what we are studying!

If I had a basic biology slide set, I could begin to show my students whats all around them. By seeing what we are studying with their own eyes, many students will retain more information, and learn more because the activity is more fun than looking at pictures in a book.

Help my students discover the mysteries of life by allowing them to see the amazing animals and plants that we are learning about!
