Ms. Parsons' Best Science Classroom Yet!

My Students

Hello! My classroom is located on the 4th floor of a century old building in Brooklyn. My students are full of energy, enthusiasm, and mumble rap lyrics. They are curious and yearn to grasp scientific concepts not only in their minds but in their hands. I remind my students every day that our classroom is a place where we are all united by our common mission as scientists to illuminate and investigate the world around us. Last year's frog dissection produced more science lovers than textbook ever has. Give them something slimy to touch, and all the sudden they are engaged and actively asking the right questions.

My Project

I am a science teacher using an inquiry-based method of instruction that gives students real hands-on experience with science, which means we do labs every week! Labs can get messy and require many resources, but my classroom is currently without many basic supplies. Any donations will help me bring science to life for my 8th graders! These materials will allow me to produce concept review task cards, which help students master difficult concepts easily. These materials will tremendously help me set up a classroom that represents our shared community of learning and discovery. My students are amazing, and as their teacher I need to be equipped with basic materials like tape and especially a laptop podium for presentations, crucial materials I lacked during my first year of teaching.
