My Students

My students are at a middle/high alternative school, and they come to us for a variety of reasons. Some of these reasons are behavioral, lack of academic success, mental, and social skills. The teachers work hard to create a school environment that has just as much rigor and content as a traditional middle/high school, but to present the material in different and individualized ways for our students. We are a small school in a rural district, and therefore we struggle to get as much recognition and funding for classroom environments and projects as traditional schools.

My students love when we do science experiments and projects but we have a hard time getting the measurements accurate due to the lack of science equipment.

My students need meter sticks, graduated cylinders, beakers, and standardized density blocks to help them get accurate measurements in their experiments and projects for science.

My Project

Any time we do an experiment or project my students have to estimate when measuring liquids or share the 1 graduated cylinder that I do have. The graduated cylinders would help students provide the students with accurate volume measurements in a variety of experiments - something as simple as comparing how soft drinks make baking soda bubble vs. vinegar and baking soda. The beakers will be used to test a variety of experiments in such as the one mention. The graduated cylinders and density blocks will provide students with a understanding of density.

The cylinders, meter sticks, and beakers will help my students to have their experiments/projects measure up to the ones that are done in the real world setting.
