Young Scientists Need Magnets

My students need magnets to make science hands-on!

  • $256 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

Could you imagine reading the definition of the word magnet in your textbook, then reading the pages in the book, but never actually getting to hold one in your hand and feel it's pull? SCIENCE IS NOT BORING!! My students need to feel that pull.

My students are third graders in a special education/gifted inclusion setting at a Title 1 school in Georgia.

They differ vastly in learning styles and ability, but have one thing in common. They ALL get excited about hands-on activities! My classroom is lacking the resources my students need to complete these hands-on, meaningful scientific investigations.

My Project

I am requesting an assortment of magnets for use in my third grade classroom. Having these resources will take science off the pages of a book and put it in the hands on my children. I really can see no other way for children to learn about the power of magnets and magnetism without having actual magnets to work with. The students will use these magnets throughout many investigations in the classroom. We will test the magnetism of various materials, hypothesize whether a rock can be magnetic, test attraction and repulsion, as well as conduct experiments that my students create themselves throughout the unit.

Having hands-on science investigations in the classroom should not be a privilege but a right in today's world.

The students of today must question, investigate and reason. Let's give these children the tools they need to be successful.
