Ms. Misty from Phoenix AZ is requesting Lab Equipment through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Waiting to Explore Science

Help me give my students the materials necessary to explore physical science. What's included is everything needed to study properties of matter. I've also included plant and animal slides to complete their botany and zoology studies. Go science!

My Students

The children at our school are avid learners. They are naturally curious about everything! In Montessori programs, children guide their own educational plan, and as a classroom it is important to have materials ready for them whenever they would like to explore something, especially our hands-on type of manipulatives.

Our classroom is located in heart of downtown Phoenix and our children would greatly benefit from new materials.

Many things in our classroom are over 15 years old! New materials will help to instill in the children the love of knowledge and a passion for learning. We will use the materials to help the children gain a deep understanding of the content while creating a beautiful environment sure to peek their interest in all academic areas from reading, math, science, history, geography, and writing.

Our funds to buy materials are very limited. Please help the children continue to learn and grow by donating today!

My Project

My students are amazing, they are so inquisitive and excited to learn each and every day. Our classroom community has been eagerly waiting to dive into and explore science but we simply don't have the materials.

Let's work together as a community to give them the most amazing introduction to physical science they could ever experience, one they truly deserve.

By giving my students these materials you will enhance their lower elementary experience in science. We have the lessons ready but experiencing chemical reactions or examining real botany and zoology slide samples will solidify their understanding of the concept-it will become whole learning.
