Science Exploration for Life Learning Skills

My students need hands-on science activities to help stimulate their natural curiosity in the world around them.

My Students

My students walk into our classroom every day full of life, ready to learn, and excited for what is in store for them that day. They love coming to school where they are safe, loved and provided for each day.

I teach at a head start program in the suburbs of Detroit where 100 percent of our students' families receive subsidies.

Despite so many hardships, my students are eager to learn and do their best. They want to be in school because they want to learn all they can so they can be successful one day.

My Project

Science is one avenue that creates great exploration! Animals and magnets are stimulants at this early age that spontaneously encourage children to investigate. Our current science center is extremely lacking in items that help my students expand on their own thoughts and investigative nature.

The donations made to this project will give my students the necessary items to discover magnets, pull and resistance and the animal kingdom!

The various magnet sets will give my children the opportunity to be creative while exploring the power of magnets and materials that relate to magnets. The Science viewers will give my students the ability to see animals/insects up close and personal. Many students have only had exposure to animals by book or not at all.

Children at this age have a natural curiosity! A hands on approach to science gives this curiosity an avenue to safely explore and create!
