TODAY ONLY: Support a classroom and your donation will be doubled!
Help me give my students a great set of headphones, instant STEM activities, and science picture books to allow them to see science come alive!
I teach 20 first grade students in a public school setting. The students live in a rural area and have limited experiences outside the county. More than 80% of students receive free and reduced-price lunches. A lot of our children are being raised by grandparents, aunts, uncles, great-great-grandparents and some are even in foster homes.
Nelson Mandela said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world."
My students are energetic and enthusiastic about coming to school and learning. Our school is a Community of Learning school which means the students stay together from Kindergarten to fourth grade. It is a great thing because they become like a family. For some of the students, school is their safe place.
These materials will allow my students to experience science through books and hands-on learning. I will integrate literacy and science standards in order to make their learning more memorable and meaningful to them. Our units of study will be the following: patterns and cycles of space systems; sound and light waves; and animal and plant adaptations. We will be able to conduct experiments using the Instant STEM Activities kits in order to pique their interest level about the science topic and promote higher-order thinking skills. For example, when learning about sound waves, I will give my students different objects to try to see what sounds each item makes. I will prompt them with questions such as, "Why do you think the ruler makes a sound, but the feathers do not?" Then, we will read picture books that explain how sound waves travel, and students will be given the opportunity to discuss the properties of sound with their groups. My classroom will benefit from new headphones so they can listen to science books on their Chromebooks.
