In North Carolina we are preparing our students for standardized science testing which will be added within the next two years for 3rd - 5th grade students. I would like to prepare my 1st grade students for this ahead of time by offering them fun and creative ways to learn about science. When I was in school, the best part about science involved all the experiments we did. However, these hands-on experiments did not happen until middle school. I would love to give my students the opportunity to engage in science experiments that will help them learn a deeper understanding of science all around them. The science tubs offered through Lakeshore have a tub for each science subject covered in our 1st grade curriculum which ensures that my students will have meaningful science experiments throughout the entire school year. Here is the description offered by Lakeshore to give you the full details of all you will be helping these students achieve: "Just open up our activity-filled tubs to introduce 8 exciting science topics—across the curriculum! Each tub comes with everything you need to explore a different concept in-depth, including 40 easy-to-use cards featuring fun, cross-curricular activities based on national science standards. Students create their own constellations, go on a rock scavenger hunt, keep a weather journal, test the pull of gravity and much more! The tubs come packed with tons of props for hands-on discovery…plus, you get write & wipe experiment charts, a set of super-involving writing prompts and an engaging paperback book that explores concepts even further! Complete set includes all 8 activity tubs. Targets standards in these areas: • Characteristics of living things • Astronomy and space science • Properties of matter & energy • Earth’s properties/weather systems • Creative & informative writing" As you can see, these science tubs cover it all and will be resources I can use for many years to come. You will benefit 100's of children by helping me bring this dream to reality. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of children and teachers!
