Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am a fifth grade teacher at Charles S. Deneen Elementary located on the South Side of Chicago, Illinois. Currently, I teach all subjects to thirty-two wonderful students from a lower socioeconomic status. Although these students do not come from privileged backgrounds, they have an enthusiastic interest in the sciences. I believe that all students should have the opportunity to experience the type of activities that scientists partake in. Historically, the group of students that I teach has the same background of those minorities underrepresented in the sciences. Science World, a magazine from Scholastic Incorporated, increases students' knowledge of living things in ecosystems. Science World highlights fascinating animals as well as provides fun experiments for the students to investigate, and helps stimulate discussion to enhance learning the fundamental concepts of science. Exposure to Science World would greatly prepare the students for the ISAT examination. In addition, the literature would increase the students' critical thinking skills. With the assistance of this magazine, we will produce future scientists!
