Teach for the Planet Science Comes to Life!

My students need Hands-On Science activity kits, Can Do! Science discovery kits, Earth & Environment theme box, Magnifiers, and science books.

My Students

In my class we "Teach for the Planet," and science discovery comes to life! My students faces light up when new items are added to our science discovery center for them to investigate and explore! As quoted by Nelson Mandela, "Education is the most powerful tool we can use to change the world."

Our school is a Title I school serving military families.

The majority of the students have one, or both, parents in the military. My students deal with numerous changes including deployments of parents and frequent moves. We are the one constant in their lives they can count on every day.

My Project

Science, especially life and environmental science, are important topics which our students need. Although science is a topic in the curriculum it does not always get the attention, as much as literacy and math. By providing my students hands-on activities to explore, create and investigate in our science discovery center, I can "Teach for the Planet" and bring science to life in the classroom. My students need hands-on science activity kits, Can Do! Science discovery kits, Earth & Environment theme box, Magnifiers, and science books. The materials I am requesting will improve the learning opportunities for my students today and in the future.

The children are so excited when they have the opportunity to explore and investigate in our science discovery center.

They even bring things in from recess to add to the center. Your donations for the items we have requested would continue this interest in helping our planet. Help us "Teach for the Planet."
