My students need a discovery table to be able to explore and view science materials.
My students need a table surface to examine science materials. Currently, they are using a rug on the floor to do so. While this is fine for some activities, there are other materials that are more suited for manipulation at a table.
My preschool students are a wonderful mixture of English and Spanish speaking students who love to play and explore all day!!
With eleven boys and only four girls, there is a need for many exciting opportunities to keep their attention. About 75% of my students have an identified disability ranging from speech impairments to autism. Our school is located in a rural area of North Carolina where many of the families are from a low socioeconomic status. The more experiences these children can have now, the better their opportunities will be later in life.
The discovery table I am requesting will inspire students to come to the science area to explore and learn about nature and other scientific concepts such as life, density, and properties of materials. I will also be able to introduce new activities such as comparing similarities and differences among living things and how to plan investigations and then how to carry out those plans with others. Children will also learn to ask and answer questions, such as, how, why, and what if? Exposing children to science at such a young age will deepen their conceptual understandings of the world around them and increase their comprehension of how science is practiced.
Your donation will make a huge impact on these precious children!
The learning that will occur will go with them through their years beyond preschool. These are the years where they need many enriched experiences to develop connections in the brain needed later in life for decision making and developing healthy relationships with others. Please help my students by donating to this project!
