My students need plants, soil, fertilizer, and pond mix in order to participate in various lab activities including biodiversity, photosynthesis, diffusion/osmosis,transpiration, animal behavior, and cellular respiration.
I teach biology and Advanced Placement Biology in a low-income, predominately immigrant, inner-city community. Our school is divided into small learning communities and our community focuses on language acquisition. Most of my students are 9th graders and over 90% are English Language Learners.
Our school has over 4500 students divided into three tracks. Schoolwide, we have 18 biology teachers and about 60 classes total that compete for supplies. Since my students are English Language Learners, they greatly benefit from hands-on experiences that lab activities provide. When they participate in lab activities, my students are able to speak science and practice their English and math skills. Such a rigorous science experience means that my students will be better prepared for the demands of higher education.
I need materials for an upcoming plant unit. These materials are just the basics for all Biology teachers. Since these materials grow and reproduce, they will last for years to come. These plants will allow me to have the materials I need ready for use when it is time for the lab activities and they will make plants more exciting for my students.
Learning about plants and their role in maintaining our environment is critical to a good understanding of biology. Your help will make it possible for my students to have a better understanding of plant life. You will make it possible for my students to participate in many lab activities that were previously restricted because of lack of materials. Thank you for contributing to future generations of scientists!
