Mrs. Mullins from Louisville KY is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Learning by Doing!

My students need materials for their project learning this school year. They will use the posters to display their learning several times during the year. The craft materials are for Zoo engineering projects.

My Students

Our fourth graders are energetic and eager to learn! They love having the opportunity to complete projects on topics that they have interest in. They need hands-on activities to keep them focused and motivated.

These students are not always afforded the opportunity to do projects at their homes that peak their interest.

We are looking to find ways to prepare them for their higher education and give them the skills they need to be successful when they have to create independent projects

My Project

The project will focus on providing my students opportunities to create learning projects based on fourth grade content and their own interest.

I also want them to have lots of experience with project based learning so that they will be prepared for upper grade levels.

The Elmer's Corrugated Display boards will be used multiple times throughout the year to help display their learning.The Better Office index cards and holders will be used for recording and archiving their learning.

The craft materials like masking tape, construction paper, foam sheets, and Sharpie markers are for our Zoo engineering projects! This is when students build their own invention that is inspired by an animal they love! Thank you!
