Mrs. McGuire-Groft from Newark DE is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

My Students

My students include a diverse team of budding engineers who enjoy creating! They are happiest when they are engaged, can use their brain power to develop and build structures.

We lack supplies necessary for success!

Our "Push, Pull, Go" materials are adequate for only four students! As

a Title One School, many of our students cannot afford these types of materials -and rely on our classroom resources!

Please help us fund enough K'Nex for each one of us to demonstrate our abilities!

My Project

Kid K'Nex materials will offer a variety of adequate materials for my Kindergarten budding scientists to effectively build structures and understand "push, pull, go" engineering concepts!

There are four tables used for building structures.

Currently, we lack materials for each student to build their own structure. Kid K'Nex materials use wheels to help demonstrate the "go" and "push" concepts in our engineering unit. Each table will have one kit with 66 pieces, allowing each student adequate supplies to build successful creations.

Independent work instills confidence, imagination, creativity and success for each budding scientist! These materials will keep them engaged and allow for student choice!
