Savvy Scientists: Learning Science Through Interactive Games

My students need access to the science and social studies interactive games and activities to help provide meaningful and engaging lessons.

My Students

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said, "Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm." Although most of my students experience under-privileged home lives, I want them to become enthusiastic about learning, so they will become enthusiastic about their futures.

A majority of my students are from poverty stricken, single parent homes.

Our community provides few job opportunities, because most of the industries have disappeared or moved to other towns or countries. Because of this, their life experiences are limited, and for most of them, education as well as their futures are not a top priority. However, our school and district has been and is continually working to empower and enhance the education of our students as well as their futures. For the past four years, our school has implemented a 1:1 initiative, and students in grades fourth-twelfth have a laptop in their possession twenty-four hours a day. We are committed to changing the lives of our students by providing opportunities they would have never experienced before and creating an environment where students, people of the community and teachers are excited about their future. Our school system is not only working for the future of our students, but the future of our community.

My Project

My students need access to the science and social studies interactive games and activities to help provide meaningful lessons. These resources will provide my students with engaging ways to learn science and social studies skills. They will be able to learn through skill-building games and animated game shows with grade appropriate questions that quiz students on many different science and social studies concepts. These resources will motivate my students as well as provide immediate feedback. This feedback will allow students to see their personal strengths and weaknesses, and it will assist me as I guide their instruction. They are also aligned to state and national standards. These resources will better prepare my students to compete with other students their age throughout the state and nation.

These resources are important as we continue to make a difference in the lives of our students.

They will enhance ordinary instruction, and provide multiple opportunities for learning. I am asking for your help as we create enthusiasm for learning, and a brighter future for our students.
