Mrs. Tullbane from Fairdale KY is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Help Cell-ebrate Biology with Models!

My students need models to visualize cells and their organelles, as well as mitosis - some of the most difficult topics discussed throughout the year!

My Students

I teach biology to juniors and seniors at a Title I public high school with an ESL program. My students are at many different learning levels. I would love to incorporate more hands-on learning with models to support all of my diverse learners. Many students have a difficult time with concepts that they cannot physically see and touch and this will be wonderful for their learning!

My students have expressed how they want more hands-on learning, and I would love to fulfill their wishes.

They love playing with my science trinkets at my desk and always ask questions about them. I hope I am able to keep them asking questions and learning with some biology models!

My Project

My students love to fidget with their give them an educational learning experience to get them using their hands to discover cells would engage even my my most uncooperative students. They will love being able to build the DNA, plant and animal cell models and use the stationary cells to help identify organelles.

These models will help meet the needs of my diverse classroom.

My students will be able to see how organelles are suspended in cytoplasm, how the cell divides through mitosis and how DNA takes its double-helix shape. These are difficult concepts even for the most determined learners.
