My Students

My students are college-bound 7th and 8th graders who come from a variety of backgrounds, yet they all have something in common: a desire to learn more. They come with a genuine curiosity for learning science, yet from a world where they expect constant stimulation. Previous science exposure for my students has been reading from a textbook and answering questions.

Clearly, they need more.

Hands-on experiences are essential to learning science and engaging today's teens in a technological world. Providing experiences for these students that they will remember for a lifetime is vital.

My Project

Chemistry is a confusing subject- to anyone. But to 7th graders who have no chemistry background, the subject is daunting. Add the periodic table in and they are LOST and CONFUSED.

I try to make learning basic chemistry fun and exciting through hands-on activities, and would love to add a fun game to the mix!

The periodic table game, Periodic: A Game of the Elements complies with NGSS standards and STEM principles so students are learning as they play. Studies have shown kids learn best while playing. We need multiple sets to allow the whole class to be involved in play at the same time.
