Mrs. Turnmire from Church Hill TN is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Texts and Manipulatives for Science and Social Studies

My students need quality resources, such as books, magnet kits, and electricity kits, to help them thrive in Science and Social Studies. The electricity kits will help the students get a hands on experience to learn how circuits work.

My Students

My students are fun, creative, and unique individuals. Their love for learning inspires me to work hard to give them the best educational experience possible. I teach 52 students because third grade is departmentalized and I love getting the opportunity to get to know each and every one of them. I want them to have access to the best resources to ensure that they have a quality learning experience each and every day. My heart is consumed by my love for every one of my students.

My Project

This will create such a fun experience for my third grade students. My students will be able to get hands-on in Science with the the circuit kits and magnet sets. The students will use the circuit kits to apply new scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts electrical energy to another form or energy, using simple or closed circuits. The students will use the magnet sets to better understand the cause and effect relationship of magnets and they will discover how to solve a problem by applying the use of interactions between two magnets. This project will allow my students to discover and research using a variety of texts. I have requested a book about each continent. These texts focus on major facts and information about each continent.

This project will also provide my students with a variety of texts about natural disasters and animal adaptations.

I hope you choose to fund these wonderful students. They all deserve the best educational resources possible.
