Ms. Davidson from Lagrange GA is requesting Supplies through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

You Are What You Eat!

My students need hands-on materials such as bingo games and books to learn about food chains, food webs and the flow of energy.

My Students

Teaching is all about the WOW factor! In order to teach students, you must make learning exciting...

I teach in a high poverty school in the state of Georgia.

Most of the children that I teach come to school without the background knowledge and experiences needed to master the state's science curriculum. For that reason, I must help students find a way to "feel" what they are learning in order to make it real for them.

My Project

In this request, I am asking for several items that will allow my students to have a hands-on experience with life science. The books, games and food webs kit will allow the students to experience what I am teaching in a "real" environment. It also makes learning fun since it is not just a paper/pencil approach.

Learning should be fun as well as educational.

In order for students to get excited about learning, they must have materials and opportunities that will grab their attention. I believe that these hands-on materials will help my students master these skills, while giving them that excitement.
