Science Hands-On Materials and Books

My students need opportunities to relate hands-on experiences in science to general knowledge of concepts through the use of hands-on kits and books.

My Students

Every time we are outside exploring the science all around us, my students are so captivated and engrossed in what they are doing. Any chance I have to expand my students' horizon by introducing hands-on scientific concepts or books, I would love to capitalize on their natural curiosity.

Working in a public Title 1 district in Texas means that my students do not have access to resources like Internet at home or a personal library.

My students surprise me every day with their flexibility, compassion, and willingness to go above and beyond what is asked of them. My classroom serves as a cooperative learning community, where my students often work collaboratively together in small groups, helping each other navigate through new concepts. My students are positive about their future and constantly keep me on my toes. I try to provide them with lessons that feed their natural curiosity while focusing on learning objectives.

My Project

The resources I am requesting are hands-on science kits and grouped science library books relating to the concepts learned from the kits. Students learn concepts on a much deeper intellectual level when they are working with hands-on materials, witnessing the changes, physical characteristics, and differences among objects. My students will be able to better connect broad scientific ideas to their already growing base of knowledge. My students will also continue to develop their cooperative skills, since these kits and books will require them to work in groups. These kits and books will provide my students with the opportunity to participate in classroom discussions that will help my students hear the ideas of other and make connections they might not have come up with on their own.

By donating to make this project a reality, you are providing generations of students with the opportunity to enrich their science learning inside and outside the classroom.

Science is a field that is often overlooked by the "powerhouse" subjects of reading and math, which pack so much broad importance. There are infinite fields of study and job opportunities in the world of science, so fostering an appreciation for the subject at a young age is key to developing adults who question the world.
