My students need 27 copies of Studies Weekly Science Newspaper.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
When was the last time you picked up a newspaper to learn about current events? My students need a variety of media sources in order to become balanced inquires.
I teach 25 fifth graders at an International Baccalaureate school.
What makes our school different than a traditional school is the way we teach. Our students are presented with questions that drive their inquiry. Each and every lessons sparks new ideas which lead to new questions and understandings. I teach the curriculum through units of inquiry that begin with a central idea. Each unit of inquiry has lines of inquiry that drive student learning.
I am requesting 27 copies of a science weekly newspaper. This informational text will come weekly and expose my students to different type of media than they are accustomed to. Having a newspaper that directly links with our science and literary standards is essential in covering all the content required. My students will be able to read this paper weekly and learn about a variety of scientific concepts. Exposing my students to a different media type will require my students to use skills that they otherwise would not use.
I am constantly searching for resources that I can use to challenge and engage my students.
This weekly newspaper that ties directly to our science standards will allow me to discuss science content in our literacy block which will allow us to conduct science experiments during our science block. Thank you in advance for donating to our project.
