Help Revitalize Science in the Classroom!

I am a third grade teacher at JW Seabrook Elementary School in Fayetteville, North Carolina. I have been teaching for 11 years, and during this time I have noticed that the emphasis in the classroom is placed so heavily on reading and math that science and social studies is sometimes being left behind. I teach in a rural area of Fayetteville, and my students come from low socio-economic backgrounds. Because of this, they have very limited experiences, and some rarely leave their own backyards. I teach all subject areas, and due to the pressures of End of Grade testing that is mandated by our state in math and reading, I find myself guilty of pushing science and social studies to the back burner, only fitting it in after I have completed what is necessary for the students to learn in order to pass "The Test". When I came across the literature advertising National Geographic Explorer, I became very excited. This publication would be the perfect way to introduce my third grade students to non-fiction reading by using high interest science and social studies content. They would gain opportunities to integrate their learning across the curriculum areas by practicing with the maps, graphs, charts, and time lines that are included in each issue. At the same time, they would be reading about current event topics that they may otherwise not have the opportunity to hear about. Finally, this publication meets both my classroom and No Child Left Behind goals that I strive to achieve each day. I would love to have a subscription for 25 copies of this publication, so that my students can expand their horizons, as well as their content area knowledge in a subject that is in desperate need of a breath of fresh air in our school!
