Mrs. m. from Lexington NE is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

She Blinded Us With Science....And We Loved It!!!!

My students need an eruptable volcano, an ant farm, a butterfly garden, a large view video microscope and a set of preschool science curriculum.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

I teach preschool in a high need, low income public school district. Eighty percent of our students are on free lunch. The majority of our students' parents work at the local meat packing plant. In addition to our American students, we have kids from Mexico, Guatemala, Ecuador, Somalia, and Sudan.

I recently read that the United States ranks 29th in science worldwide. As a parent and a teacher, I find this statistic reprehensible. However, I'm not into blame, I'm into let's start science at the earliest possible time....PRESCHOOL!!!!

My current classroom has no science equipment, save the Styrofoam cups with grass seed sitting on the window sill. I've requested age appropriate science kits that will draw on my students' innate curiosity of their natural world. My students need science materials which include a comprehensive science curriculum package (magnets, plants, colors, and senses), an eruptable volcano, an ant farm, a butterfly garden, and a large view microscope.

Your generosity can help reverse the U.S.'s alarming science ranking among students worldwide. This equipment will provide many hours of wonderment, and hopefully lay the foundation for a lifetime love of science. Thank you!!!
