Nature Learning Time in Pre-K!

My students need science materials such as test tubes and eye droppers, thermometers, and discovery sets to start the new school year.

My Students

Do you remember what it was like to explore your environment? My students have not yet had the opportunity to explore the world they live in.

I serve twenty preschool students who live in the heart of the mountains of Eastern Kentucky.

They are extremely eager learners, who are just beginning their school days. They are at a very critical time in their life, the beginning stage of reading, math, and science. Their focus should be on learning, rather than what they don't have or what they need.

My Project

I am requesting specific science material the children can explore during free choice center time. At this age, if children can explore the world in which they live, they can grow up knowing how things have come to exist like themselves. The test tubes, goggles, puzzles, thermometer, picture cards, butterfly garden set, bead sequencing set, eye droppers, etc. will teach the children how to not only create experiments, it will also teach them about proper measurements. People deal with measurements their whole life and it's never to early to explore.

This project is so important because it will provide science material for children in my classroom for several years to come.

These materials will help children learn to work together and explore! When children explore their environment, it allows them to have the courage to explore things in the future.
