Mrs. Martin from West Jordan UT is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Photosynthesis Plant Lab

My students need 10 Plant Science kits to engage in photosynthesis and the scientific process of laboratory design.

My Students

My students have been learning about photosynthesis and the scientific process. Every day we utilize reading, lecturing, and a hands-on experience to engage in the content. The students need an opportunity to engage in a real full scale scientific investigation to really lock in the concepts.

The students are filled with excitement and willingness to learn.

However, as a first year teacher it is difficult to put together a full scale lab investigation of photosynthesis while using the scientific method process. My students would greatly benefit the opportunity to get their hands dirty with this plant lab kit. I would greatly benefit by having the materials needed so I can focus on the delivering instruction rather than the lab logistics.

My Project

I am requesting 10 Plant Science kits to engage in photosynthesis and the scientific process of laboratory design. My students will be engaging in a plant lab this spring and we will use these pre-designed kits to ensure success in the lab. The contents included will be utilized to build, design, and implement scientific experiments. The students will submit a report that will support skills in technical writing.

The project will make a difference in the lives of both my students and for myself.

We will actively engage in the learning process and be able to bring our concepts full cycle. The students will take scientific process into their lives and build upon it. My hope is that each student will walk away this year with new skills to implement solutions to their everyday problems.
