Ms. Putnam from Decatur AL is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Little Scientists

My students need more exposure to science activities with games, specimen sets and magnet rings.

  • $317 goal

This project expired on August 10, 2012.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

4 and 5 year olds are natural scientist...wondering and asking questions all the time. There is a lack of science materials in our classroom.

I have 18 4 and 5 year olds that are FULL of LIFE and READY to LEARN!

I have 9 boys and 9 girls. The children in my class come to school each day eager to learn. It is my responsibility to provide them with educational materials to enhance their learning.

My Project

All items I am requesting will enhance the children's learning. They will be able to use the items in group settings and individual task. Hands on activities are the best way for children to learn. Providing these items will provide great learning opportunities for all children in my classroom. The items I am requesting all pertain to science. Magnets and insect specimen kits are two of my favorite that will allow the children to explore hands on science.

All children need educational materials in their classroom to help them learn.

All these materials will enhance their learning experience. Science is a major part of everyday life that children need to be exposed to.
