Ms. McCall from Phoenix AZ is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Project-Based Learning in Anatomy

Help me give my students have more project-based learning. These labs would allow my students to type blood, test their visual perceptions, see how germs transfer and model the heart.

My Students

As a teacher in a high school, I have the unique opportunity to teach students who are just starting to look towards their own future. To me, this means it is the perfect time to truly introduce the students to the world around them as well as show them career opportunities.

My students are almost, but not quite, adults.

They desperately want to be treated like adults, and many of them act like it, as they have grown up in difficult situations but they are still teenagers. Some of my daily joy is getting them to put aside their home burdens aside so they can focus on growing as a person, and maybe giggle along the way.

My class is filled with brilliant minds who are at a disadvantage for the technology-focused future they have all chosen. I love showing them all the opportunities that exist for them and giving them hope to pursue what they would like.

My Project

Anytime a student gets to be active, and use their hands for their learning, the learning becomes more concrete. Anatomy and Physiology as a class is both easy to come up with interactive labs while challenging to actually do them. It would be useful for a student to be able to learn how to blood test, but not something that is typically safe to do in the classroom. This is where special lab kits come in.

Students who get the opportunity to test blood, gauge their visual perceptions, and experience the spread of germs, will understand these subjects better than their peers.

Currently, I am unable to reproduce these experiences in the lab, but with the aid of these kits, I would be able to do just that. Anything that I can do as a teacher to deepen their knowledge, is something that I strive to do.
