Did you know there is more than sand and seaweed on the ocean floor? There are mountains, volcanoes, canyons, and plains. Please help my students discover the wonders that lie beneath the Earth's oceans.
My students are 6th graders at a middle school in Georgia.
They are excited about learning the mysteries of our amazing planet. This is the first time most of my students have had science everyday. They don't want to read about science in a book; they want to experience it.
With this simulation kit, students will be able to see and touch features of the ocean floor. They will be able to hold pieces of the ocean floor. They will be able to create ocean currents and see how their actions on land affect our ocean currents. My hope is that it will help them understand more about our oceans and why we need to protect our fragile ecosystem.
"Teach me and I will forget, show me and I will learn, involve me and I will understand." Hands-on learning is so important for students to understand abstract concepts.
Ocean topography and currents are difficult concepts for 6th graders. Your generous donation will help my students discover the amazing world beneath the ocean's water
