Springing Forward with Plants
My students need the Lily Bulb Tissue Culture Classroom Kit to learn about plants, bulbs in particular.
Our first ever field trip to the Skagit Valley tulip fields this spring would be much more meaningful if we could understand the process of how a plant bulb grows. The hands-on process of watching live plants grow is extremely exciting and educational for second graders.
Our school is 15 minutes from affluent cities, yet our high needs/high poverty school suffers from lack of funding and donations.
We are highly transient and represent 7 different ethnicities and 29 languages. We sure do learn a lot about culture and enjoy taking time to celebrate our differences. We LOVE doing hands-on science experiments the most! We are in the process of ending our science unit on balance and motion and would love to learn about the plant life cycle and go to the tulip fields in a couple months!
These resources will allow my class to understand, firsthand, how plants grow. It will increase their excitement for the world around them, increase their ability to understand and appreciate the tulip fields, and this project is the perfect way to welcome spring.
This project is something my students would never be able to do if it weren't for donations to fund it.
You would be helping them get excited about science and had live experiential learning. Thanks for considering our project!
