Mrs. Matera from Scottsdale AZ is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
Help me give my students materials to plan a voyage to Mars with telescopes to study space and the Polydron engineering kit to create inventions for the exploration.
I work at a Title 1 school in Arizona. Most students receive free and reduced breakfast and lunch every day. I am the gifted specialist at my school and I work with students in third through 5th grade.
Part of my day is dedicated to teaching math to high achieving and gifted 4th and 5th grade students.
They are hard workers and are pushing themselves each and every day. They are very talented math students and I want to give them the opportunity to apply math to real world situations.
My students are in the process of applying their mathematical skills to the study of space and planning a trip to Mars. They are researching specific celestial objects and voyages. They are extending their learning by planning their own trip to Mars. One of the main goals is to choose a problem that astronauts will face and then design a solution. The Polydron kit, hydraulic claw, and wind lift turbine will allow the students to build prototypes of their designs to share with others. They also need add-on materials, such as magnifying glasses, in their designs. Finally, the students will be getting a visit from a local university astronomy club. I would like the students to have access to telescopes to use during this evening event.
