My Students

I teach at the alternative middle and high school program in my district. It is a small school and the students and staff are a tightly connected group. My classroom is a new addition to the programs available to these students who were previously using an online program to learn sciences. Next year we will be offering hands on lessons to better engage students in science.

My Project

This project is to get the the materials to provide a hands on experience through the first quarter of Physical Science class. Materials in this project include both chemicals and glassware to make this possible.

We need supplies for our brand new classroom.

Supplies in this project include chemicals to make three different kinds of crystals. There are materials to make a polymer rope as well as a kit to discover different chemical reactions. Beakers are very important to exploring chemicals and elements. These will be used for years in the lab and will be the very first pieces of glassware in the classroom.
