Science Tools!

Help me give my students some awesome tools for learning Science! These items relate perfectly to what we are learning in 5th grade, and they would be amazing in helping my students understand these topics!

My Students

My students are refugees from all over the world! Many of them speak multiple languages and have learned English after coming to our school. They come from very low income families and would appreciate being able to do more hands on projects in school because they do not have many unique learning opportunities very often. I would love to be able to provide more of these opportunities for them!

My Project

I would love to give my class some awesome hands-on science materials, dinosaur eggs, flashlights, Plants Specimen Set, and Cosmic Space Projector, to make learning science more interesting and fun! I feel like having more examples and materials for the students to interact with would impact their learning in a positive way. My students this year and in the future would find these items engaging, and they would make learning these topics more valuable and enjoyable to my students. These tools would also connect really well with what they are learning this year in 5th grade, which will help make processing these topics easier and more fun! Thank you for considering my project!
