Scientists In Training!

My students need more science materials and activities to help them explore using their five senses.

My Students

I teach at a Title One school where there are families from all over the world. Most of these families are low income which means that their children receive free or reduced price breakfast and lunch provided by the school. This also means that they usually do not have extra money for school supplies and materials.

My students are preschoolers with disabilities.

These disabilities include autism, speech and language delays, cognitive, physical, and cerebral palsy. I also have a handful of typically developing children in my classroom who serve as peer models for their peers.

My Project

For young learners, science is just an extension of their everyday world. We don’t have to teach young children how to wonder, discover and explore through play because they do it naturally. With the right science activities, children can develop their understanding of the natural world, be problem solvers, and be introduced to basic elements of scientific reasoning (seeking evidence; testing predictions).

Preschoolers learn best from doing.

I want to place the specimens and tubes in my science center to help emphasize hands-on experiences that will require minimal explanations from me. All of these materials will also go along with the various themes that we talk about in our classroom such as light and sound, building and life cycles.
