Holt 5th Grade Science ACF Grant Proposal

My students need consumables and manipulatives in the science classroom; scotch tape, Legos, Sharpie markers, timer, atomic wall clock, timer, and solar charging station.

My Students

My students are excited about science and eager to participate in the classroom activities. Given the amount of hands on opportunities available in the science classroom, many consumable and interactive supplies are needed to enhance student learning.

Our school serves a wonderful, real-world blend of students.

Our students come from a wide variety of socioeconomic, ethnic, and religious backgrounds. The goal of our school is that all students achieve academic success and learn responsible ethical citizenship.

My Project

My students use science notebooks in their classrooms and the use of tape, highlighters, and sharpies really enhance their learning. The use of a timer in the classroom really keeps the work on schedule and provides a timed framework for student work. Students also will receive enhanced lessons through sections of the Cosmos program where they can learn from the top scientists in the world. The addition of Legos and a clock that charts the phases of the moon will really enhance the students' study of simple machines and the solar system.

This project will make a huge difference in the lives of my students by providing them with the opportunity to use consumables and manipulative's in their classroom on an almost daily basis.

The cost of these products add up over a school year. By funding this project each and every student will be assured an opportunity to study science using a wealth of resources.
