Mrs. Barnum from Brandon FL is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Super Science Centers

My students need hands-on Science centers, such as the "Can Do!" Science Discovery Kits, and a complete set of Science books (Gr.1-3) to explore and discover different Science topics.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

How do plants grow? What is matter? Students explore Science through hands-on learning. With engaging Science Centers and Science books my students will be able to find information and explore everything from light and magnets to plants and rocks.

My class is made up of 14 super sweet Kindergarten students.

They are some of the most energetic, enthusiastic, 5 and 6 year olds I have ever met. These children are eager and ready to discover new things daily. The school they attend is a Title 1 school located in Brandon, Florida. Science centers are exactly what my students need to have engaging science lessons. They provide all the materials to help aid in the teaching of many different science standards. With these science centers and books, the students will be provided many hands-on manipulatives that can help them with science experiments. Each science center is directly geared to the state standards.

My Project

By supporting this project you will allow my students to conduct lots of fascinating experiments and experience the scientific process in action! Some of the areas my students will learn about include: Force & Motion, Matter, Gravity, Weather, Plants, Animals and the Solar System.

Thank you for taking the time to read about our project.

Your donation will help give my students the tools they need to gather facts, observe objects and make hands-on discoveries about the wonderful world we all live in.
