Mrs. Hendricks from Maryville TN is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

It's So Hard To Be A Moh's!

My students need mineral identification kits to improve their knowledge of Moh's Scale of Hardness.

  • $264 goal

This project expired on December 31, 2015.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My main goal for our classroom is for the students to be as hands on as possible, with all of our curriculum. By the end of the year, I want my students to love science and take a keen appreciation of the natural world with them into their homes and communities.

Our student population is around 65% economically disadvantaged.

My students have a desire to know more about science and the world around them. Unfortunately, there are not many opportunities for this in our community. School is where they get to be a scientist and proudly do science. Help us become the scientists of tomorrow!

My Project

With the Moh's Scale of Hardness activity kit, my students will be able to see, touch and test minerals they have never seen in person. They will be able to put their inquiry skills to the test by using the scientific method to identify minerals. They will put the curriculum into a real world context. These kits will bring our Earth curriculum right into their hands.

Currently, our classroom lacks some key elements to our 7th grade Earth science curriculum.

Your donation will help bring these key components into our students' hands and let the science become a part of their lives.
