Science Matters!

My students need a Science library to learn about the world around them.

My Students

I have a class of students who love to learn. They are very sweet and everyone who meets them falls in love with them. They are constantly requesting science books. It would be my dream to make their dream come true.

My students have very little background in science and we have a limited number of science books in our classroom library.

I want to give my students the opportunity to read about science and learn more. My students are incredible. They always want to learn more and more. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources that we need at my school. There are very few science books in our classroom library. As a result, my students do not have the interesting books about science that they want to read. They are especially interested in learning about rocks and are constantly bringing in different kinds of rocks to show to the other students.

My Project

I am requesting books for our classroom library that are high interest science books. So many of my students have requested books about science, and I need to be able to somehow provide these resources for my amazing students. I want to keep my students interested in science and we can do it with these books.

It is so important that students have access to books and knowledge about science.

I am hoping to to get these materials as soon as possible to enable my students to excel in science.
