Help me give my students art supplies so that they have choice in how they create and show learning in their science journals!
Science is often a challenging subject for middle school students, yet, when given the right materials, it is the most fascinating and engaging subject of them all! Who hasn't made a vinegar and baking soda volcano at some point in their lives? We attend a small K-12th grade school located in a rural town in which there are just as many dirt roads as there are paved.
Many of my students are under resourced 7th and 8th graders who have a passion for learning about the world around them.
Limited only by their own understanding and previous classroom experiences, these young people thrive in an exploratory atmosphere. Many of them have had limited opportunities to receive high-quality science exposure due to the heavy emphasis on mathematics and literacy in the early years. Economic backgrounds and limited school resources have inhibited opportunities for them to learn kinesthetically, and develop their scientific communication skills linguistically. My students have had minimal exposure to project-based learning tasks which use real-world applications.
I am asking for a supply of Tombow dual tip pens, along with bins to store them on each table, so that I can teach my students how to sketch note their science notes. Sketch noting is a way of bringing art into the science classroom. Science really lends itself to sketch noting because it is a very visual field. I am so excited to teach my students this strategy that I only recently learned about. My students and I will be learning and growing in this skill together. I have asked for a few journals so that I can use them to continue to grow and master my own skill set to support my learners in this endeavor. We will use this note taking strategy to design and create models, like the ones we can create with the make-do cardboard designing set and supplies that I have asked for.
