Learning About Science With Experiments

My students need science resources, like a microscope, a Rocks and Soil learning center, magnets and more, to provide hands-on science experiences.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Our children should be equipped with the necessary resources to become leaders in the 21st Century.

The Whiz Kids of Third Grade are a great bunch of students that I have enjoyed teaching over the last few months.

They are growing to become students that are motivated to do well and try their very best. My students reside in the southern region of the United States. They attend an urban, Title I school where over 95% of students receive free or reduced lunch.

My Project

When this project is funded, my students will be able to view slides through a microscope. The microscope will allow students to see various things that they wouldn't ordinarily see in a textbook. The science learning kits will allow students to have hands-on learning with various manipulatives, as well as the use of nonfiction reading and graphic organizers.

With the help of your donations, my students will be able to have access to additional science resources.

These resources will allow the students to experience science in a way that goes far beyond the textbook!
