This proposal is to have a microscope set for my third grade bilingual students. Our school does a magnificent job of having science materials available for our students in school. However, we would not have enough funds to be able to provide a microscope for each class. I teach at a Title 1 school (90% or more receive free or reduced lunch) and microscopes will have an immediate impact on the lives of our students. Our fifth grade students take the TAKS test and this test allows our students to show how much they have learned throughout their elementary school years. This is an all-encompassing test; however, since our students do not have access to the microscopes through their whole elementary school career, they have a hard time truly understanding all aspects of the science curriculum. While, the fifth grade classes have access our school microscopes as they need them, other classes only have access to the microscopes after the 5th grade classes have used them. If our students could have access to these microscopes throughout their time in third grade, they would be better able to understand these very important concepts. If this proposal is funded these microscopes will be available to all classes so each child will have access to these microscopes. I will also be writing 4 more proposals like this one to fund a whole class set for the microscopes. Again, thank you for looking at our proposal.
