Mrs. Nelson from Windsor CA is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Science Labs for Special Needs Students

My students need lab science kits and science support materials for the study of Earth and Space Science this year.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students are freshmen to senior students with disabilities. Some of my students have physical disabilities, some have learning disabilities. All of my students are motivated and have a desire to progress and succeed. My students attend small group classes with me for all academic subjects, and they join their peers in general education classes for Health, PE, and electives such as Art and Photography. I am very lucky to be their teacher, they are a kind and focused group of students who enjoy learning and take their education seriously.

My Project

I am requesting Earth/Space Science Lab Kits and Science support materials. I teach all academic subjects, Science, Math, English, and History, to special needs high school students in one self-contained classroom. As my classroom serves multi-uses, it is not set up like a typical high school laboratory classroom.

These materials will make a difference because they will allow my students to engage in hand on scientific experiments.

This year in Science we will be studying space. These science experiment kits will give my students a deeper understanding of what they are learning about because they will actually get to experience the science instead of just hearing about it or reading about it. It will also benefit them by giving them experiences closer to what their peers have in the general Science classes at high school. The poster and DVD's will visually support my students' learning and enhance their understanding of the Science text.
