Mrs. Braden from Columbus OH is requesting lab equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Making Scienice Snazzy

My students need an inflatable solar system, magnet kit and books on space exploration to enhance our science curriculum. They need visuals to make the solar system real to them. Magnets will help them explore the properties of magnets.

My Students

Our class is full of twenty-six kindergartners who are ready to use all the resources around them to learn! We are an urban, Title I, Mastery School where students come in on buses from all over the city. Many of these children come from families that are struggling to provide even the basic necessities.

These students are hardworking, caring, creative, and love to share their learning with others within the school and beyond!

These students show up each day with an excitement to learn and create!

My Project

The inflatable solar system will allow the planets to come to life for my young students. They will be able to hold them and see their paths around the sun. The readers will be on their level and will help them learn more about each planet, the stars, etc. The students will be able to read these books during silent reading or buddy reading with a friend. The magnet kit will let my students explore the magnets through hands-on exploration. They can make predictions as to what objects attract magnets and those that won't. We will also explore the poles of magnets.
