My Students

My classroom is filled with 30 6th grade students in each of my two classes, with 60 students total throughout the day. My students are excited to learn science and math in an exciting and engaging manner. They love to build items and see how they move and work.

Our students are taught be be great community leaders and servants.

We make sure we teach students to be respectful and help others by being mentors. Students foster their creativity and entrepreneurial spirit.

My Project

I would like these items for my class to help scholars have a hands-on experience with earthquakes and the layers of the Earth. The earthquake simulators will allow my scholars to see the difference between a scale 1 and a scale 4 earthquake. Scholars will be able to build a building to survive these different scaled earthquakes.

Having a hands-on experience will allow the scholars to see first hand how natural disasters work on Earth.

Scholars will be able to use the Properties of Earth Activity Tub to get a closer look of how the Earth works with the layers and volcanos.

The dry erase boards will help my scholars with their math without having to waste paper on a small graph. Thank you for looking at my project.
