My students need 2 microscopes to help them observe organisms up close as we study Next Generation Science Standards.
Our school strives to "reach" each student the best we can through one-on-one, small group instruction and rti (Response to Intervention) strategies to name a few. It is a challenge to find new and interesting ways to keep students focused and engaged throughout the school year.
My students are highly motivated to learn each and every day they come to school.
Our school is located in a low socioeconomic area where ~70% of our students qualify for either free or reduced lunch. Many of our students are English Learners and/or Special Education Students.
The microscopes I am requesting will enable my students to see for themselves up close and personal the amazing features and characteristics of plants and animals in our world. NGSS 1-LS1-1 Animals have body parts that capture and convey different kinds of information needed for growth and survival.
With the aid of microscopes, students will be able to see things not normally seen with the naked eye.
We will be studying the butterfly life cycle. By using the microscope, students will be able to see the butterfly's egg on a leaf. They will also be able to see the larva hatching from the egg in real life! This will far outweigh looking at pictures of this stage of the butterfly life cycle. Imagine the excitement that will stir up student engagement in our classroom!
I have seen how engaged students become self-motivated and can't stop asking themselves, "What about this?! What about that?!"
