Mrs. Michaud from Camarillo CA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Solar System Exploration

My students need fun games, interactive CDs, and other materials to explore the solar system and develop a thirst for learning about science!

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Help me inspire future scientists! Every year our materials budget gets cut more and more...students need fun activities to be engaged in science and apply what they have read in their text book.

I have twenty-four third grade students at a Title 1 school in California.

They love learning but don't have many resources at home to help them. I would love to provide them with a wide array of resources at school to help them expand their knowledge about the solar system.

My Project

The solar system resources will excite the students and inspire them to be more inquisitive. Our country needs more students interested in science and that interest should be cultivated at an early age. By providing these students, and future students, with these resources, you will help develop future scientists.

These resources will be used year after year.

Each group of students will explore the solar system and present the information they learn to others in a written report, as well as in an art project.
