Science is the key to grabbing a child's attention for other subjects! I teach 4th,5th, and 6th Science in a small rural school system. We use a very rigid reading program so when my students walk into my Science classroom they are ready for authentic based inquiry and they want to experiment!! I have included the Arkansas Frameworks that include using microscopes:
Examine cells on a microscopic level
Conduct scientific investigations on physical properties of objects
Make accurate observations
My students are very interested in Science , but it is hard to get the materials we need sometimes! The focus in recent years in my school district has been on Math and Reading. This creates an obstacle for getting funding for the Science department.
My students love to examine objects under a microscope! We could build on so many experiments if we only had microscopes!
Your help will ensure that my students stay interested in Science and go on to higher education!
