Mrs. Edwards from Mountain House CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Social Studies Art Projects Abound!

My students need 30 sets of colored pencils along with an amazing, top-of-the-line pencil sharpener, to create really cool thematic art projects in Social Studies!

  • $477 goal

This project expired on September 11, 2012.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

We need art supplies so my students can create fun and interesting art projects as the culminating activity for each unit in Social Studies.

My students are eager and energetic learners.

They love to learn new things and have engaging learning experiences. They also love to create art displaying their knowledge, however, we are in need of a class set of colored pencils and an amazing electric pencil sharpener to make this dream a reality.

My Project

Creating art is therapeutic, relaxing, fun, and educational. Please help my students have the experiences of creating their very own master pieces at the conclusion of each Social Studies unit. Imagine the possibilities...sketches and illustrations of the California Native Americans, Explorers on their ships, Padres working at the Missions, and 49ers searching for their golden nuggets. You can help to make this happen for my fantastic fourth graders!

Imagine students leaving fourth grade with a full set of their very own California illustrations to share with friends and family and keep as treasured memories of fourth grade.

Please help to make this dream a reality!
