As a teacher in a lower income/higher poverty school district, my students are faced daily with some challenges in and out of their learning environment. Despite these challenges, I strive to provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences to help them become life-long learners.
Many of my students qualify for free and reduced lunch based on their socioeconomic status.
This factors in with preventing some of them from getting ahead early in life and many do not have all the life experiences others take for granted that everyone at that age would have. Even though I am not able to control their home environment, I can control the experiences I provide them with during the course of their school day. By doing this in a positive and creative way, I hope to always foster in them an excitement for learning that they will carry with them and help them to be successful in their future academic years.
My students are in need of more hands-on science projects to get them interested in science inquiry. Having LEGOs Simple and Powered Machines Sets to actually work in small groups to build the different types of machines would be a great reinforcement to what we read about in our science texts.
The donations to this project will help to improve my students' understanding of how simple machines are constructed, how they work, and apply this knowledge to simple machines used in our daily lives.
By building with the LEGOs, the students will have fun learning some very important science concepts.
