Mrs. Bischoff from Newport NC is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

It's the Little Things that Matter!

Help me give my students slides to examine single-celled organisms. I want to engage students with real world examples of these organisms. This will broaden my students interests in science related fields .

My Students

Our middle school is an academically well-performing school of approximately 700 students. We have approximately 30 percent of our students receiving free or reduced-price lunch. I teach seventh grade science, which is a blend of physical, earth, and life sciences. I am in a school that has received budget cuts and have need for classroom supplies and materials to help students explore these various disciplines of science.

We are working to grow a STEM program so that we prepare our students to meet the demands of our increasingly challenging workforce needs.

Our goals are to supply tomorrow's needs today...lofty but something we feel is necessary.

We are always trying to excite and inspire!

My Project

I am asking for 8 sets of living protozoan cultures and prepared microscope slides. These protozoa will include paramecium, volvox, euglena, and ameoba. The sets include living cultures, plastic concavity (culture) slides, and a disposable plastic pipets.

This is necessary as currently, we have no microscope slides for use in this learning standard on single-celled organisms.

It is really difficult to describe protozoa from a textbook or still image. Students are unable to see protozoa with the naked eye. Microscope slides are essential for students to truly see the details and understand the difference in characteristics such as method of locomotion.
