Mrs. Stevens from Sarcoxie MO is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

STEMing in First

My students need different science supplies to help them be more hands-on, while learning the science standards we teach.

My Students

I teach at a small Title 1 school. More than 75% of my students receive free and reduced lunch. This school year, we started Universal breakfast, which means that all students get a free breakfast daily.

No matter the home life of my students, they love coming into a safe environment every morning, where they learn new things and achieve great things.

My students have a passion and desire to be the best students, and people, that they can be.

My Project

This are great hands-on materials for each first grade classroom. Students will have the chance to be more hands-on while learning our different science standards. Our students will learn how magnets work by using the magnetic building toys. Our students will learn about the butterfly, frog, ladybug, chicken and plant life cycle with hands-on toys, along with different activities we have planned. During our space unit, our students will get up close to what each planet actually looks like, while watching how they orbit the sun with the motorized solar system. Our students will get to learn how gears work, while playing with the gears.
