LEGOS for Learning: Building Blocks of Matter

My students need 5 sets of LEGOS to use as a manipulative to learn about atoms and molecules.

My Students

Jean Jacques Rousseau once said "We should not teach children the sciences, but give them a taste for them". Students in my classroom are hungry for science, but have limited resources to satisfy their craving!

Students in my 6th grade science classroom are kind, caring, and doing the best they can with a bad situation.

Recently, our middle school has been condemned, and with a school system already in debt, we have had to move into a few vacant rooms in the county's already over-crowded high school. This means teachers on carts instead of classrooms, limited supplies and technology, and NO SCIENCE LAB for students to safely and efficiently master science content.

My Project

Science instruction should consist of 50% hands-on experiences. Trying to find worthwhile hands-on lab activities for students, that are also quick and easy to clean up and assemble, since I travel from room to room on a cart, has proven itself challenging. LEGOS are a perfect fit for this role. Students will be able to make hand on models of atoms and chemical reactions. This will help students have a visual representation of an abstract idea. Atoms are the building blocks of matter and these "building blocks" will help to lay the groundwork for many other science concepts.

Please choose to support my student.

The deserve the same opportunities in science as a student in a higher income area. Please help them to succeed not only in my science class, but for years to come.
