Mr. Fuller from Midland GA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Take Your Best Shot - How Does Gravity Affect Motion?

Help me give my students a chance to see physics in the real world! The Monkey and Hunter demonstration is a classic example of how what we THINK will happen isn't always what ACTUALLY will happen.

My Students

My students come from all ethnic, racial, and economic backgrounds. They are hard working and conscientious students who give me great effort regardless of how high I set their goals or standards. I'm proud of how they pull together, support each other, and strive to make our school the best it can be.

In our class, we believe the best way to learn science is to do science.

Our content can't truly be learned from a textbook. Rather, it should be experienced, felt, gripped in our hands, and absorbed by our brains and bodies. I love to hear my kids get excited when they see or hear something new because they know they'll soon understand the 'how' and 'why' behind what they've seen!

The highest reward my students give is when they find science OUTSIDE our class and share their thoughts and experiments when they return. I see social media posts, receive emails, and get personal messages that often include great "Guess what I saw!" comments. I live for those moments.

My Project

I believe the best science lessons involve an activity that let's us get our hands on the concept. And the very best way to get students really thinking about it is to have their predictions be .... completely WRONG! I love to see their brains go to work when they see their predictions are not accurate.

The Monkey and Hunter demo takes their assumptions and turns them upside down!

But the science behind it is even more fascinating. Students learn and retain this new knowledge in an engaging and fun lab exercise that keeps them talking about science for days!
