Ms. Tabor from Racine WI is requesting Classroom Basics through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Materials for Interactive Notebooks for Force and Motion

Help me give my students materials to help them learn force and motion more effectively. Many of them need notebooks to do interactive notebook activities. They need calculators to help them solve for things like acceleration and force.

My Students

I teach 7th grade science in an urban, public, Title I school where about 75% of the students are considered economically disadvantaged. About 20% of my students are students with disabilities. Science is such an engaging subject, but one where materials are needed. Many of my students don't have access to materials needed for class.

To foster engaged learning in a science classroom, we need certain materials for my students to have use of.

I want these students to have the best chance of success and they need the materials to do so.

My Project

Flip chart paper, calculators, pencil sharpener, pencils, notebooks- these materials are the basic necessities for interactive notebooks. The interactive notebooks will help engage students in their learning and give them a place to reflect on their learning as well. The calculators will help students be able to solve more complex problems when trying to find things like acceleration, force, or converting things into metric.

Many students do not have basic materials, like notebooks or pencils; having access to these materials will help them find the wonder in science, by not worrying about having the materials.

Force and motion is such a fascinating topic and hands-on unit, and I want them to have the basic materials so they can see this.
