I teach 6th grade science in a relatively small town in Arizona. As our state (like many) has placed its strongest emphasis on Language Arts and Math, Science has often paid the price. My students come a variety of cultural backgrounds in low income community. The kids are curious and eager to participate. I offered Science Club this year and the excitement that the kids expressed about being part of the activities was infectious. Our club president was a student who is learning English and often ask questions about how to integrate what we were learning to other subjects. Their love of Science is why I am asking for help.
My students are eager to learn Science through hands on activities and real Science. Seeing cells directly in front of them and using current technology is an exciting way to bring this to life. Students will use the microscopes to view animal and plant cells to compare how they differ and better comprehend cell theory.
With these microscopes, my students will be able to see plant and animal cells up close.
Fostering excitement in learning Science is the key goal and microscopes are a tool to making this happen. Hands on learning is vital for retention of skills and love of learning.
