Showing Creativity in the Science Classroom

Help me give my students supplies to help them with their hands-on learning and visual arts during science stations and projects.

My Students

I have a very diverse group of students. Some are students that have great opportunities, others NEED to have the opportunities given to them. That is where I step in!

Being a science teacher to over one hundred students, I need to keep my students engaged and able to show what they are learning.

Our school receives very little funding for consumable supplies and materials so if I want to give these experiences to my students I often have to purchase the supplies myself. I teach very bright children who just need the resources to succeed.

My Project

I am creating science stations, hands-on activities, and experiments so I can target my students who need more time and more guidance with me while giving my higher level students the ability to get more creative and become more independent.

They will need this requested Staples construction paper, Astrobrights colored paper, rulers, card stock, pens, makers and scissors to create their Interactive Notebooks and showcase their learning while in specific stations.

This allows students to learn various ways while using diverse learning methods.

In today's society, students need an interactive environment in order to succeed in their learning environment. School supplies, such as the ones I am requesting, are greatly reduced after Christmas, but our creativity does not. These supplies will ensure my students will continue to create and learn in their stations.
