I teach a third grade ESL Inclusion class at a Title 1 school in Durham, NC. 22/24 of my students are Hispanic. Our district has recently adopted these wonderful science inquiry kits to address our curriculum in science. My students really love them. It is my hope that some of my students will spark an interest in a science related career. The district did not have money left over after purchasing the kits to purchase safety glasses to go along with the kits. Although we don't use any chemicals, we do use rubber bands, soil and other ingredients that I feel could cause some safety concerns. We have a discussion about safety beforehand, and my students are very well behaved. Accidents do happen. I just want to assure their safety when we do our science inquiries. I am asking for a class set of safety glasses/goggles to ensure the safety of my students.
