Ready for Research?

My students need a book cart to use for a self-directed research center in our classroom.

I am a third grade teacher at a high needs, low income school. We are constantly struggling to meet our children's needs and provide the materials they need to be successful.

I would like to have a research center in my classroom and display books and non-fiction materials related to the topics which we are learning about in our classroom. I want the research center to be student-directed and friendly.

The leveled reading book browser cart is ideal for the classroom because it is requires little space and is mobile so that it can be moved to different areas in the classroom where students are researching and reading. The cart features nine different tubs which I would use for different Science and Social Studies themes such as plants, soil, community helpers, and landforms. All students would need to do is to take a tub and all the research materials and activities would be right at their fingertips!

Your help will ensure that my students have a self-directed research center to explore Science and Social Studies concepts more in depth and complete activities which are engaging.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
