My students need 28 dinosaur models for research projects on fossils.
Do you remember what it was like when your teacher made science come to life by having you create your own model to demonstrate your learning? My students have yet to experience the satisfaction of "discovering" fossils to create a model of a dinosaur for their research projects on fossils.
My students are enthusiastic researchers who enjoy learning about the world around them.
They attend an inner city school in Southern California. Most students come from families with limited resources and limited formal education. Students enjoy coming to school and are especially eager to learn about the world around them through science.
One of the units we study is Fossils. Throughout the course of this unit, students learn about this topic and produce a research paper they share with their peers and their families. Many of my students struggle with their writing skills. Many times, I have students first make an illustration or a model before they write. In this way students acquire the language and vocabulary they will need to use in their writing in a natural way. Students will especially enjoy digging for dinosaur fossils using these kits. The models they make will enhance the reports they write. At the end of the unit we will display our work and create a "museum" for their peers and parents to visit. Students will create artifacts for the museum with the help of the dinosaur models. It will be a memorable experience for students and their families.
Your donations of dinosaur models will enable my students to construct their own learning in order to better understand the job of a paleontologist.
Students will be motivated to learn about earth science and how to gather important information from fossils.
