My Students

Many of our parents are overwhelmed and stressed with the responsibilities to working at home, being laid off, or working as an essential worker and now also have to worry about teaching their children learning at home without the tools or time. My district's current curriculum is lacking hands-on activities that students can do at home with supplies they will have at home.

Science is meant to be hands-on.

Students lack interest and understanding when the only learning they get is to read and answer questions. I would like to purchase some at-home hands-on lesson materials to help engage my students in learning like what they are used to in the classroom - hands-on!

My Project

I teach middle school science. In my district, we have not been allowed in our building since March 17th. We did not know at that time we would be e-learning for the remainder of the year.

Overnight we were surprised that we would be off for 3 weeks which later was extended for the rest of the year.

They will continue e-learning until the middle of June. I need some fun hands-on science lessons that my students can do at home with materials they will find at home. Students learn science best by doing, not reading.
