Mrs. Ripley from Princeton ME is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Science Labs for Every Learner

My students need miscellaneous science supplies to dive into the Next Generation Science Standards with fun lab experiments.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I teach a variety of age groups. I teach grades 5-8 in science. I also teach grade 5 math. My students thrive when they can use technology, have preferential seating, and when they find real interest in what we are learning. These are three things I try to help them achieve.

A high population of our school is low income and often times the best part of their day is being at school.

At school they have friends, adults they trust, and a guaranteed meal. A huge part of my job is not only teaching, but learning how every student's personal life affects how they behave and most times, that behavior affects how they learn.

My Project

This is my first year teaching science in Maine using the Next Generation Science Standards. In the past I have taught using the Maine Learning Results. These new standards are very project, lab, model oriented and often times the most interesting and applicable activities or labs require lots of different lab equipment and materials.

I currently do no have a lot of lab equipment that is often needed for these more interesting labs (hot plates, microscope slides, beakers, etc).

Having this project funded would make planning for science incredibly easier and would allow me to give my students something meaningful to learn from. A lot of learners learn best through physically working through something. That's one of the best parts about teaching science!
