Help me give my students cool science experiences through Flocabulary, a rock tumbler, and the gift of organization with binders.
I teach at a Title I school in Duval County, Florida. My county is incredibly diverse, with speakers of dozens of languages and students from all over the world. My school mirrors the county population. I have students from Latin America, Africa, and Europe along with students who were born and raised in the United States.
In order to make content connect with my students, I involve as many engaging activities as possible in my lessons.
My students are committed to and excited about learning every day. They are hard workers who aim to succeed both in school and in their extracurricular lives. By bringing new activities, technology, and media into my classroom, I can better prepare my students for success in the future.
I am looking to purchase supplies in order to make science a memorable class for my students in fifth grade. I want to provide hands-on and engaging activities for my students to participate in. Since science is typically not tested until 5th grade, students come into my grade level unprepared and with much information to catch up on.
My goal is to use engaging activities to help build student knowledge of our subject so that they can do their best.
I will use the rock tumbler to show students a real life example of weathering and erosion that allow them to see the change actually happen over time. Flocabulary will allow us to sing interactive and fun rap songs about all topics that will be more memorable for the kids than basic fact memorization. Finally, the binders will help keep our learning organized so that students can best access their resources.
