Mrs. Urive from Visalia CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Kindergarten Science Center

My students need prepared slides set, magnifier, bucket balance, Can Do discovery kits, and specimen set for a hands-on science center to explore the world around them.

  • $575 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students come from varied backgrounds and abilities. Some of my kinder kiddos are English language learners and have special education and social/emotional learning needs. All of them make up the unique fabric of our classroom family. What I love best about my students is their willingness to learn. My students love hands on activities to explore the world around them and collaborate with one another. Each child contributes their unique experiences to the learning process and classroom environment in so many special ways.

My Project

The requested hands-on science center materials will provide my students the opportunity to learn about the world around them within our classroom. Many of my students don't have the resources to do these types of activities at home. A hands-on science center which includes specimen sets and prepared slides kit, along with maginifier and bucket balance in our classroom will expand their learning and promote scientific inquiry. This center will contribute to student engagement and collaboration for my young 21st century learners. These activities will be a great addition to our STEM center and will enhance my students’ learning in many different ways. Introducing them to science through hands on exploration will compliment the many different lessons I teach.
