My students need materials like owl pellets, science specific games, models, and other materials to make our science labs hands-on for every child.
Children are naturally curious about the world around them. The best way for them to stay curious is to give them as many hands-on experiences as possible.
My science classes are very active and I strive to provide hands-on instruction to help meet their needs and get them to pass the state standardized tests while enjoying what they are learning.
Because of the high level of poverty in my school district, many of my students have not had the opportunity to visit museums, travel, or had the life experiences that help them to understand the abstract science concepts they are expected to learn in the 4th and 5th grades.
By adding the games and activities from this project, my students will be able to work in small groups. My students will have a concrete understanding of basic electrical circuits, how day and night/seasons occur, and the interconnectedness of plants and animals. Not only will they achieve higher test scores, but will have a lifelong understanding of these ideas that will lead them to be better critical thinkers in all areas of their lives.
After completing these activities, my students will be better able to explain core science concepts.
These materials will also allow us more opportunities for STEM projects. The nature of the materials will also make the learning they are doing more fun and more successful because of a higher level of participation from ALL of my students.Read More
