My students need a classroom size periodic table, parts for building molecule models, and samples of elements.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My high school level Chemistry students (mostly 11th grade) are students with special needs such as: Learning Disabilities, Emotional Impairments, and Autism. They attend a Title 1 school (meaning more than 50% of students receive free or reduced lunch); so many of them are on a tight budget. The student population is very diverse in terms of ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and abilities. Many of these students have goals of attending college as the first in their families. Overall, they are pretty awesome!
What would a Chemistry class be like without spectacular Periodic Table on the Wall?! With your help, students will get a chance to see the ultimate Chemistry tool in a colorful format; a large wall-size Periodic Table. They need an updated table since in the last year, the remaining elements of the table were officially named. They will see samples of various elements through a kit that provides actual sealed samples of 22 of the elements. They will also use a hands-on approach to build models of molecules through a classroom size modeling kit. I'm asking for your help to bring abstract chemistry concepts to a more accessible level for students who absolutely need a different approach to learning.
