Mrs. V. from Garland TX is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Let's Rock the Rocks

My students needs 2 complete sets of classroom Rock, Fossil & Mineral Collections and a Rock & Soil Activity Tub for science.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Hooray! This project is fully funded

Young minds need to take an up-close and personal look at rocks to learn how they are formed and all the properties they display. I want my students to be able to explore these properties of rocks, fossils and minerals firsthand by using real-world objects! Each of the boxes that come in the science kit collections that I am asking for includes 15 easy-to-handle specimens—all labeled and ready for my young scientist to explore and learn from. By using these materials my students will be targeting the following standards in science: • Composition of rocks & Understanding of fossils • Physical properties of Earth materials • Processes of rock and soil formation • Making observations and using hands-on science tools • Comparing and Contrasting the physical properties of various rocks & minerals My students will experience concepts in-depth, that are cross-curricular and based on national science standards that would only be possible with the use of these necessary science tools. Creating young scientists starts with hands-on and real-world life experiences. Please help me open the doors of science to my students and years of future students and scientists.
