Mrs. Tappan from Westwego LA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Science Class, Boring? Not Anymore!

Help me give my students the items needed to complete our science experiments! Some of the items that are most important are batteries, light bulbs, wires, Legos, and markers. Our major experiments focus on electricity and forces.

My Students

My 4th grade students impress me everyday with their want to be the best learners they can be. They work harder than any other class I have ever taught. These students are striving for mastery of their ELA, Math, Social Studies, and Science standards.

My little scientist are always hungry for more knowledge!

Though coming from a high poverty area, my students do not let their personal obstacles get in the way of their learning. They come in most mornings with a smile and several questions that I am glad to answer. I couldn't be more grateful to have such inquisitive, hard-working students.

My Project

These materials will make a big difference in my science instruction. Currently, I am scrounging for materials to complete experiments that will keep my students engaged in my lessons. By having these materials readily available in my classroom, I will be able to give the students the hands-on experiments that they deserve. Some of the items that are most important are batteries, light bulbs, wires, Legos, and markers.

I can only imagine how excited my students will be when they are able to tinker and build; The ah-hah moments will be priceless.

I still remember building my first electrical circuit and how much fun the trial and error was. Through this project being funded, my students will be able to complete a similar experiments and so many more.
