Beau Dodson Weather was one of two sponsors for this project. The teacher, for this fifth grade classroom, is Mrs. Warren.
We were happy to participate in this project. Science!
This is the project in her words
My students need science materials, such as electricity and microbiology kits, to conduct as many science experiments as they can this school year.
Many of my students come from low-income homes and do not have the resources to help them to continue to grow academically. Despite the challenges some of my children face in and out of the classroom, they are eager to learn and do their best.
I want my students to be able to walk in their classroom and be surrounded with an abundance of fun and educational resources that will help encourage them to want to explore and continue to learn.
In our classroom, I'm trying to bring Science to life by allowing the students the opportunity to conduct various science experiments. Students will grow their own gardens, feed and watch birds grow from our windows, build various electrical circuits, grow bacteria, and much more. These experiments will allow them to have fun while building lifelong memories.
These resources will allow me the opportunity to make our science textbook become more exciting.
This will help create an interest in students willingness to want to learn more about science. Every year, I always have a couple students asking the first day of school if we will be doing science experiments. It is my goal to do as many as possible and keep it fun!
