Mrs. Lindsey from Adel GA is requesting Books through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Young Scientists at Work

My students need magnifying glasses, animal and plant life cycle figurines and books, books on forces, solar system visual aids, National Geographic books, and other materials to bring an enhanced level of learning into our lessons.

My Students

My students are special because they have a great desire to learn new things. All students at my school qualify for free lunch, and for some, that is the best meal they get during the day. They come to school with smiles regardless of their socioeconomic backgrounds.

Students in my room are engaged in high-quality activities that enhance their learning.

They are energetic and have a passion for using various educational materials during our lessons. They really enjoy using Chromebooks for online educational games and lessons.

My Project

I need materials to make my science lessons more engaging for students. They need magnifying glasses to observe tiny details on leaves, insects, and other items. They will use chart paper and markers to draw what they see and describe it with details that will teach others about their objects.

It is evident that hands-on activities take lessons to a higher degree of learning.

My students need real-life items and non-fiction books to use in our science lessons. Large magnetic visual aids will provide details about the planets, plant life cycles, and other science topics.

National Geographic books and other non-fiction books will provide my students with vivid pictures and recent information on a multitude of topics. Students will enjoy reading the books and learning new things. The materials in this project will greatly enhance the teaching and learning of science in our classroom.
