Mrs. Epley from Spartanburg SC is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Preparing for 6th Grade Science 22/23

Help me give my students the opportunity to succeed in my Science classroom next year! I would love to get the weather tools and magnets to help students grasp such difficult concepts. Thank you for your support!

My Project

I am looking forward to working with a new group of students and helping them grow in their Science knowledge. The best way to do that is by making sure they have the tools and other resources necessary to be successful and understand the new topics. Weather is especially hard for 6th grade students to follow and maintain. Therefore, providing as many visuals and hands-on resources as possible helps yield higher understanding and retention of the topic. There are many things that can be demonstrated with weather tools that will help the students focus on the why behind the tool, but you can't provide those opportunities without the tools to demonstrate to the students.
