Science for All!

My students need ChemKits and Petri dishes for engaging and hands on science experiences to help them understand scientific principles.

My Students

My students have generally had negative or limited experiences with school and almost all of them are a couple of grade levels behind. They study English, Math, Science and Social Studies and earn credits while they are in our care.

My students are in the custody of the state and attend my class anywhere from a few days to a few months.

The students range from twelve years of age to eighteen and are with me all day. They are in transition and generally waiting for a foster family or room in a program. Often, they come to me after being in a youth detention facility or a foster family that didn't work or after completion of a drug or behavior program.

The class is generally fifteen or fewer students, but with the turnover I teach about 150 students each school year. Some of them return several times and bring with them new and varied experiences. Unfortunately for some of them, being in the system is the only normal they know. Hopefully in the time with me they can have a positive school experience and positive interactions with adults.

My Project

These Chemkits and Petri dishes will really improve my science and technology curriculum. Since needing to teach all of the core subjects in this new assignment, science has been my weakest area.

The lessons are very interactive and the Chemkists let the students discover scientific principles through experience and the scientific method.

Since the students are with me all day, learning science through a book is not enough to keep them engaged.

The lesson bundles I have ordered cover a wide range of science topics. Since I teach students from grade 7 to grade 12 this will help me differentiate my instruction. I am excited to incorporate this into my curriculum!
