Science Smarties in Room One

My students need fun hands on Science learning centers, which will help foster a love for SCIENCE!!!

My Students

My students LOVE SCIENCE but we have very little hands on activities will help our future scientists of tomorrow!! Sharing the love of science with fun hands on activities and fit perfectly with the Next Generation Standards!

My Kindergartners are a fun loving group of 5 & 6 year old students!

They love challenges and to be challenged. They love reading and writing but LOVE SCIENCE and how it works! They attend a K-6 elementary building in neighborhood school mostly of middle class families.

My Project

My kiddos have been begging for fun science activities. These hands on activities will help them gain more science knowledge and support their eagerness! It will build stronger science minds of tomorrow! I will be able to supply our science center with fun and engaging activities that will enable my students to grow and learn!!! I am so excited to introduce my students to the EXPLORATIONS KITS that I have selected: Sink or FLoat, Magnets, and Animals and Life Cycles just to name a few! They will fit nicely with the units that I teach!

We are so excited to continue growing as learners!!!

As their teacher I want to support their needs by reaching out to the donors and remind all of you their future success depends on all of us!!! So let's start them off on the right foot!!! Yeah for science the biggest growing field in our nation!
