Our Education Is Electric!

My students need hands-on electricity stations in order to understand how electricity works!

My Students

“Where does electricity come from?” I was asked this question after explaining that I had to plug in the power cord in order for my pencil sharpener to work. It got me thinking about teaching my students about electricity and how it works.

I teach Humanities so I get the privilege to teach the whole school!

My focus is on science and teaching students about our world in a way that is interesting and meaningful.

My students are so inquisitive and willing to learn, and they love learning hands-on! We are a Title I school, and all of our students receive free breakfast and lunch. Most of our students come from low-income families. These supplies will help my students learn all about the world around them, and I hope that you will consider our project! Thank you.

My Project

Learning hands-on is gives my students a chance to be successful and not be afraid to fail. That is why this project is so important in my students' learning about electricity. With these projects my students can build and create different ways for electricity to pass using the snaptricity projects. I am building a lesson around alternative power as well using the book so I can teach my students where we can get electricity from! The storage trays will be used to store all of the pieces when not in use. These snaptricity projects will be used during stations, and the students will work together to create the projects in the manuals!

“How can electricity move through the wall?” My students ask so many questions, and I would love to have the snaptricity projects to be able to show them firsthand how electricity works.

I hope you will consider this project!
