Understanding Real-World Science Issues

My students need science enrichment magazines for reading material when they finish their weekly experiment early.

My Students

I see twenty-five homeroom classes a week, ranging from Kindergartners to fifth graders. They are in a low-income, urban community. The majority of the students are bilingual learners.

Students come to my class once a week, for one hour, to do a hands-on science experiment.

Each grade-level does a different experiment or activity that correlates with what they are learning in their homerooms during science instruction. Students love science and get very excited to learn new topics and see how the world works.

My Project

My students are in need of interesting science reading materials. With Scholastic Science Spin (for primary grade students) and Scholastic Super Science (for intermediate grade students), students will be exposed to real-world science topics and current science conversations at appropriate reading-levels.

These magazines will be available for students to read once they finish their assignment for the day.

Students will be able to improve on reading skills, as well as conversation and debating techniques, when they discuss the articles with their peers. Furthermore, extension activities will be available for students who are reading the articles to work on reading comprehension skills.
