Help Pre-K Bring Science to Life!

My students need tweezers, Can Do! Science Kits, test tubes, speedy snow, water play kit and mold and play sand that will help them engage in meaningful scientific experiences.

My Students

My wonderful Pre-K students are enthusiastic learners with a lot of questions! Bringing them meaningful science materials will help them explore these concepts on their own to build their knowledge, vocabulary and love of learning.

My 23 Pre-K students attend a small, urban school in Maryland.

They are a diverse bunch! Several languages and even more cultural backgrounds are represented. They are young at 4 or 5 years old, but are as inquisitive as any student in our Pre-K through 8th grade school. They constantly ask me questions about the world around them, and are always looking for fun things to get their hands into! They learn through exploration, play and discussions. These eager young learners absorb everything are always looking for ways to learn even more!

My Project

My students are curious, inquisitive and eager to learn. They absolutely love to get their hands dirty! These young learners love to be able to do things by themselves. That is what makes this age group so fun! They are so excited about school. By helping us get basic science materials, my students will be able to take their love for hands-on learning and explore scientific concepts with me, and with their small, independent group. We learn through play in Pre-K, and that is just what we will do with the science Can Do! kits. These kits will help us hold lessons based on concepts that my students already are eager to learn about, but the materials are all there and are developmentally appropriate. The other materials, such as the moldable sand, sink or float water play game, and tweezers will help my students not only explore scientific concepts on their own, but also help strengthen their fine motor skills. These materials will help my students learn about their world!

My young learners want to know everything.

They are always eager to participate in hands-on lessons, and are so full of questions! They love science experiments - these help us develop our vocabulary and learn about these topics, such as sound, sinking, and magnetism, for the first time. Specifically, my English Language Learners will benefit from these materials as they will help them build their vocabulary in hands-on ways. Help my students bring science to life and fuel their curiosity!
