My Students

Most of my students learn best by investigating and doing labs. They are mostly visual and hands-on learners. Many come from households where money is tight, so asking for materials from home may not yield all the materials needed for an investigation. All have good attitudes and an earnest interest in discovering new things. They work well in groups, but need manipulatives to investigate the concepts discussed and learned in their science class. Inquiry-based learning is the best avenue for the way my students learn.

My Project

All students want to do experiments. The best ones are the ones that can't be done inside. We used to have rocket launchers, and the students really enjoyed learning about rocketry. However, time and weather have robbed us of this joy.

Providing rocket launchers will enable the students' minds to blast off in new directions.

They get to test out different ways to gain altitude using direction and pressure. Some even invent alterations to the design of the bottles. I love watching them use their creativity. Sometimes their ideas don't work out, but they always have fun, and that's learning!
