Ms. Nzengung from Glenarden MD is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Indoor, Outdoor, Second Graders Need to Explore

Help me give my students some much needed outdoor and indoor equipment. My students have been in dire need of clipboards to assist with their STEM instruction, especially given our recent focus on performing science experiments.

My Project

My second graders are an extremely curious group of scholars. One of the most frequent questions within my classroom is "Why does it do that?" resulting in a lengthy explanation and demonstration of whatever phenomenon that has catches their eye. As we dive deeper into our science curriculum, focusing on the effects of erosion on the Earth's surface, our exploration has increasingly lead us to outdoor experiences and hands-on experiments. We are requesting clipboards, glue sticks, tape and more.

While my students are eager to engage in these science experiments, the absence of any clipboards within our classroom has made it quite challenging for students to engage in the writing component of or experiments as they have nothing to bear down on or their papers are being blown away by the wind.

For my students with special needs, the interlocking tasks of managing their learning equipment, performing the science activity, and writing down their scientific findings can be very burdensome load, even with the support of their classmates offering steadying support and rushing to grab their wind-strewn equipment.
