Mrs. Howes from Highland CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Lions, and Tigers, and .....Plants?! Oh my!

My students need hands on materials, such as stamps, games and sequencing kits, for Science. Technology these days is great, but nothing beats a real live bug or plant!

My Students

I am hoping to change the world one science lesson at a time!

I work with a wonderful group of 2nd and 3rd graders that are eager to learn.

We try to bring in as much as we possibly can from home and real life, but these items would be helpful because they aren't the typical things you might have around the house.

My Project

What's better than getting your hands dirty? Or watching a caterpillar grow and change into a butterfly right before your very eyes? Students these days "see" so much on TV and the Internet without really experiencing it! This will give us the chance to experience some new Life Cycles together in school.

Every little bit helps.

I would love to show my class full of eager learners how Science really effects our everyday lives, one plant or bug at a time. Thank you for taking the time to consider our request!
