Life Science- For Those in the Concrete Jungle

My students need a comprehesive life science kit.

My Students

How can students get excited about science when there are no materials for hands-on exploration?!

We are a diverse school, with a high percentage of minority students, high poverty, high percentage of students learning English as a second language and high numbers qualified as special education students.

Yet, even with all this, my students become excited, engaged and even giddy when we are able to learn science, and especially science in a hands-on, real world way. You can't hold them back from learning, when they are given the tools others take for granted.

My Project

I am requesting a comprehensive life science tool kit. This will give our classroom all the materials and curriculum for us to explore-using all our senses, topics in life science: plants and animals and all that surrounds them. Students will be able to see how and why plants seek the sun, what type of food and habitat a snail needs, and how worms change our food scraps into compost. It will also help guide students in making observations, asking questions, thinking of a hypothesis, designing a plan and working through the plan to find the answer-and discover even more questions! This early excitement and engagement in the life sciences is what is needed to help build the conservationist and environmentalist of tomorrow!

This project is so important in giving students who otherwise would not have the opportunity, to become excited and engaged with science.

You will be helping to shape future generations of scientist! Give my students the gift of life-life science that is!
