Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach in a low socio-ecomomic urban school. I teach third grade and I also lead the science committee. Our school is 96% free lunch, 90% black and 9% Hispanic, and we are a priority school. We are also an International Baccalaureate primary years school. Our method of teaching science is using inquiry. We are short of supplies and we need engaging activities that will make our children successful. The LEGO Wheels and Axles Class Pack and the LEGO Pulleys Class Pack will enable our school to meet our curriculum and our theme goals. They will also engage our students in higher level thinking. The students will use their creativity and social skills in designing projects that meet our school goals and their developmental needs.
