Mrs. Anderson from Saint Paul MN is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Scientific Minds Want to Know!

My students need items to support learning in Science. The books, real x-rays, and microscopes will support that new learning.

  • $494 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My students do not have regular access to the hands-on tools needed to learn the topics that we cover in Science.

My room is filled with eager, energetic, curious students.

They represent cultures from all over the room. Seventy-eight percent of the families in our building qualify for free or reduced-price lunch. Our school district has had to make many budget cuts and classroom supplies are limited. We need your help to nurture these Scientific minds.

My Project

Having books to read and learn about the human body or the life cycle of a plant, real X-rays of the human body, and individual magnifying glasses will allow curious minds to ask questions, research, conduct hypothesis, collect and analyze the data and draw a conclusion!

Imagine being six years old and discovering your love and curiously for learning about how things grow, work, change and having the tools in your classroom to explore those interests!

That is what your donation will give to students!
