Ms. Turner from Oklahoma City OK is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Motivating Your Innovative & Creative Self

Help me give my students resources that will be creative. The Cell Quest games would help my students be motivated to learn about the animal cells while having fun. The art supplies will help them build models and diagrams.

My Students

My 6th grade scientists will be innovative and creative. As a first year teacher, I hope to create hands-on learning that gives them the opportunity to use resources in the classroom. They will work in groups to answer questions, create models, present their work, and participate in brain breaks. I hope to incorporate other subjects including reading, language arts, art, physical activity, and math. This year, my goal is for the students to learn professionalism and companionship while learning and growing in their knowledge of science.

My Project

The crayons, colored paper, glue, and scissors will help my students bring forth their creativity while building models and diagrams of cells and making charts and graphs. I always loved using items more than just a pencil and paper. I believe it creates motivation and confidence in a project.

The Cell Quest game I have chosen will give my students the opportunity to learn about animal cells without the drag of textbook reading.

They will also have a form of competition to enhance motivation.

Lastly, the students will be working in groups or teams which will give them a sense of companionship.
