National Geographic Explorers

My students need 25 subscriptions to National Geographic Pathfinders edition magazine to help use reading to teach science and social studies content.

My Students

Do you remember all your subjects being separate in school? Help me integrate Social Studies, Science and Literacy for my fourth and fifth graders.

My students come from high needs, low income families who struggle to meet basic living expenses.

They come to school eager to learn and I want to provide the materials to keep them excited about school and learning. They have little support at home so I need to give them everything I can during the school day.

My Project

The magazines I am requesting provide engaging, standards-based material that can help teach three core subjects: nonfiction literacy, science, and social studies. Nonfiction Literacy * Feature articles cover topics in depth. * Discussion questions encourage students to think analytically. * Wordwise glossaries for each feature article build vocabulary. * Reading Tools work sheets provide graphic organizers and other comprehension aids. * Writing Workshops teach students how to produce different types of nonfiction. * Time lines and diagrams help students understand sequences. Science * Hands-on Science experiments develop inquiry skills. * Illustrations and labels help students learn key scientific concepts and terms. Social Studies * Maps enrich students' understanding of places, regions, and other key geography themes.

By donating to this project you will be helping me to integrate three core subjects into one.

It will help the students reading skills in a fun, engaging way and will also reinforce science and social studies concepts. It will help them build non-fiction skills while reading to learn about science and social studies topics.
