My Students

My students love learning! They are inquisitive and eager. It is a joy to see the wonders of the world through their eyes. They are excited and invested in their learning. I love how they are able to look past themselves and have empathy and understanding of others. They are a joy to teach.

My Project

My students love learning about science especially when they get hands-on learning experiences.

Two topics that my students love are fossils and plants.

They will learn how archeologists and paleontologists investigate the Earth with the Fossils Dig Kits. They will learn about how and why fossils form as they excavate fossils during a classroom fossil dig.

Budding gardeners will learn firsthand how plants grow as they pot and care for their plants. The students will be able to observe how a plant grows from seed to plant. The Sprout and Grow Window will allow students to see the seed growth clearly.

These hands-on resources will enrich our science curriculum and help to foster a love of science.
