I would like my students to play around with water, for instance prepare an experiment that would help them to understand the concept of density, use water to understand volume by counting drops of water in a graduated cylinder, or measure water to understand mass. I would like them to have a variety of experiences measuring and messing about with water to ensure that they will be on the road to success. They will be successful when their science exam comes up in the spring. I want to give them the task to design and construct a mini submarine that will sink in a container of water, touch the bottom and rise to the top all by itself. I facilitate hands-on science inquiry classes for one hundred and twenty students each day. We are located in Central Harlem and the majority of these students eat free lunch. I would like to use aprons that have sleeves and are made of vinyl to protect them from getting their clothes wet. The students are excited about the idea, however, we will need 120 water play aprons. We will also need 7 sets of 2" circle, rectangle, triangle, square and oval punches to create collages, with paper, foam, thin metal, and cloth crafts to use as decorative tools for our science journals. Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
