My students are an amazing group of learners from disadvantaged backgrounds. 100% of our students receive free lunch and 1/3 of the students speak a language other than English at home. The students have limited experiences outside the classroom walls. They have limited exposure to current academic materials and often utilize used and donated supplies. They have limited access to cultural and extra-curricular activities as well. The children are eager learners just waiting for the right tools to help them succeed. Please help a great group of children soar high to reach their full potential!
My students need books and giant magnetic planets to help them learn all about the solar system! One of the Science topics that my students love the most is the Solar System! They love learning about the different planets and their moons. They inquisitively ask why we have night and day, what planets can we see from Earth, and why they have so many moons. The wonder why Jupiter has a big, red spot, why Saturn has rings, why Mars is red, and why Uranus spins on its side.
Sadly, we do not have the resources for them to research these questions and create meaningful projects.
With these scientific planet books and magnetic planets, the students can develop research reports, create models, design poster displays, and examine all the planets of our galaxy! They will be able to see close up pictures and diagrams. Furthermore, this will develop skills in informational comprehension, textual organization, and note taking skills. This collection of Solar System books and materials will help my students soar to new heights!
