Sixth Grade Scientists on the Move

My students need lab supplies like solar energy beads, gloves, and SuperScience Magazines to start the new school year. Our classroom animals also need a few supplies for the school year.

My Students

Help my students be scientists! My students are very inquisitive and need hands-on science materials in order to foster their interest in science. I want to provide my students various opportunities to think critically, perform experiments, and draw conclusions related to science.

My classroom is bursting with light and energy.

My classes are very diverse. I have many students who are English language learners and I have many students with special needs. I also have students from many different cultures and economic backgrounds. Even though there are many things that make each and everyone of my students unique individuals, there are also several things that all of my students have in common; they are intelligent and curious people who are always smiling and excited to come to school every day.

My Project

I want to provide my students with hands-on activities that are engaging and thought-provoking. I will work hard to provide my students with the skills they need in order to think critically while participating in scientific investigations. I have requested Energy Beads so my students can uncover the hidden energy of ultra-violet light. These amazing beads change from white to a rainbow of colors when you step into the sunlight. I requested a Sedimentator which is a fun tool students can use to watch the process of river erosion and deposition. I also requested SuperScience Scholastic Classroom Magazines so students who finish their work early will have enriching material to read. The Color My Bath Color Changing Bath Tablets and Bromophenol Blue 0.04% 500mL solution will be used to complete two different labs investigating both chemical and physical change. The nitrile gloves will keep my students hands protected as we complete science investigations.

My project is important because it will provide my students with activities that not only cover our state's curriculum but go beyond the minimum requirements in order to provide further opportunities to use critical thinking skills and participate in hands-on learning.

These science materials will provide my students with opportunities to work both cooperatively and independently on science concepts we have covered in the classroom.
