Ready, Get Set...Explore!

My students need hands-on science kit activities that they can use to explore physical, life, and earth science.

My Students

My five year old wonders are very curious about their world. This is a perfect time to take advantage of their curiosity by providing as many opportunities to expand their experience with science.

My students are in a short day program, so every moment at school is precious.

Many of my students come to school for the first time in their young lives and their academic experiences are especially limited when it comes to science. This is why I need to take advantage of the time I have with them to integrate as many science opportunities during their school day.

My Project

The ready made science kits will save me a lot of preparation time. The magnet kits will be used to teach hands-on science. I will be able to give my student frequent and ongoing opportunities to explore and experiment in areas like, physical, earth, and life sciences. The hands-on activities make it fun and engaging.

I want to empower all my students and using a science curriculum that is supplemented with opportunities to explore and do to keep them engaged and learning in all academic areas.
