Inquisitive Scientific Minds Want to Know

Help me give my students hands-on innovative tools to explore plant and animal cells, the human body, Newton's Laws of Motion, and Earth's systems.

My Students

I teach 5th and 6th grade science in a Title I school and absolutely love my students and their families! We have a wonderful community, and parents are involved in their students' education and school activities.

My students are creative, thoughtful and innovative!

They absolutely love hands-on, active, engaging projects and challenges that allow them to think outside the box to find solutions and new ways to solve problems. I encourage them to see the "why" behind the concepts we study in science and apply their knowledge of classroom content to real-world situations.

My Project

Over the past two years, all aspects of education have transitioned from in-person learning to virtual, and in some cases a hybrid of the two models. During virtual learning since the onset of COVID 19, many students did not have access to hands-on science learning. While students may have been given handouts to read about science, they missed out on actually getting to do science. Exploring science through hands-on manipulation with tools and experiences in lab settings is critical for helping students solidify understanding of science concepts and connect the understanding in the classroom to real-world phenomena. Having access to science tools, models, and scientific activities will allow me to expose my students to many science concepts and build their creative thinking and problem-solving skills.

My dream is to instill a love for science and to foster creative thinking, problem-solving, and students' confidence in themselves as young scientists.

To bring my dream learning experiences to life, I’d love to get a hands-on kit so students can experience Newton's laws of motion. Using the various parts of the kits, students could observe the effects of kinetic and potential energy and see first-hand how energy is transformed from one form to the other.

As we transition to life science and learn about cells, my students would love to see three-dimensional cells and get to manipulate the parts and see how they all fit together to compose a cell. Having the chance to touch and manipulate cell parts will help students make connections between structure and function.

Models, such as a 3-D model of heart will help students connect ideas learned during the cell unit to organs and systems in the human body. Expanding into ecosystems, my students would get to explore ecosystems using an Ecosystem Kit by building a terrarium/aquarium.
