Science Adventures

My students need Investigate Science! activities, Force and Motion books, and Science Stories paperback books to assist them with our research assignments.

My Students

Many of my students have yet to experience hands-on approaches to learning science concepts. The students enjoy reading full color books of each topic discussed in science. This school year can begin a whole new science adventure for the students.

My students enter the classroom each morning wanting to know "what are we doing today?" I always say "are you ready to rock and roll?" and the students get excited.

The students are always eager to learn new things in ways that captures their attention. During lessons on types of soil, many of my students were excited about touching sand similar to that at the beach, because they have never been to the beach. My school is in a small town, but the staff tries to make the students' learning experiences memorable. It is a school where Arts Instruction is integrated into classroom lessons through music and visual aides.

My Project

The students will use the Force and Motion books during that unit of study during research assignments. The books will be an aide in allowing he or she to decide whether to research force or motion, or both. The Force and Motion activity center will be used to give the students a conceptual understanding of how it works. This will give the students knowledge that he or she will be able to apply throughout their schooling experiences. The Investigate Science stories activities will help the students learn many science concepts in fun and exciting ways. These items will give the students experiences that they have never had before.

These science donations will help my students take a science adventure that they will remember throughout school.

The materials will assist the students with the Earth and Life Science units in ways that will help them view science in a different way - a way that will keep them curious and excited about learning new science content.
