Science Made Fun!

My students need a set of science games to help make the concepts come to life.

My Students

Making Science come to life helps students understand the hard concepts even better. I am a 4th grade teacher of Science and Social Studies. My school is a middle class school. My students love to explore new Science concepts through hands-on activities.

My classroom is filled with 26 active students.

We switch classes in 4th grade, so I have the opportunity to have 78 students all together. These students range from gifted and talented students to those students who need extra help to understand a concept. They are eager students who ask lots of questions and always want to find out more when learning a concept.

My Project

My students are active learners who learn in a variety of ways. Not all my students grasp the concept being taught when they read it from their textbook. I like to grab all of my students interests by allowing them several ways to explore the topics being taught. My students need these Science games to help capture their attention and make learning fun. They need to be allowed to explore the concepts through hands-on and not just read it from a book.

All students learn differently, and I want to be able to capture all my students interest and help them better understand the concepts being taught.

With your help, this can happen. By using these games in my classroom as I teach these concepts, I believe all my students will have a better opportunity to not only learn but remember the concepts taught.
