My Students

My students are smart, creative, and hardworking individuals. My students are very special to me and deserve the best. They are superstars and excel every day with smiles on their faces.

Science is a very important subject but is under-studied in school so I'm requesting materials so that my students can have access to concrete hands-on materials that will expand their vocabulary and understanding of key concepts and skills.

My students in science class because of the lack of materials we have. There are limited resources and thus the students demonstrate a lack of motivation in class and some are not excited about science. With the generous help of Donor's Choose, my students will be more engaged, enjoy science, and want to come to class. , will build a stronger attendance in class and an engaging class.

This project will be very beneficial to my students and will help this engage students who are emotionally and physically shut off by engaging them in therapeutic practices that will better equip them with social skills in which they can use in the classroom to get along with positive peer relationships.

My Project

The materials that are related to this project are very important because they relate to ways in which the students can navigate and enjoy the many different ways science can be fun and enjoyable.

The materials requested will help the students learn about the ways in which we can study the periodic table of elements, physical science, life science, and earth science.

This will help in discovering the way science works throughout the world and exciting and accessible experiences.

My students are disengaged in science class because of the lack of materials we have. There are limited resources and thus the students demonstrate a lack of motivation in class and some are not excited about science. With the generous help of Donor's Choose, my students will be more engaged and enjoy science and want to come to class. This will build a stronger attendance in class and an engaging class.

These science materials, games, and microscopes will help my students to have fun and to be the best that they can be in the school and achieve success.
