My Project

I can’t wait to have these materials so that my students can be inspired by reading, writing and explore science concepts. They will learn how magnets work.

This book is awesome because it explains how magnets work and the science kit has a magnet and a multitude of metals that will allow my students to explore how the magnet can attract or repel different materials.

The felt tip pens will let my students write observations on colorful post it notes.

My students will be so excited to have these science kits and school supplies. They will learn science concepts in a hands on way and have fun in the process. Thank you for supporting students and thank you for encouraging students interest in reading, writing and love of science.
