Statewide Reach for Local Impact

FIND IT FUND IT FLORIDA

My goal is to let students see that even though we are talking about land forms as mentioned in social studies, they will learn about many types of plants that we have learned in science. So the two can be closely related and they can build that connection.

Goal

My goal is to let students see that even though we are talking about land forms as mentioned in social studies, they will learn about many types of plants that we have learned in science. So the two can be closely related and they can build that connection. 

 

What will be done with my students

We are departmentalized, so I see two groups of 19 students for social studies and science. Each group will get to build a land form diorama either with flowering plants or non-flowering plants.  

 

Benefits to my students

Every time we do a science project or social studies project, the students will use their lab coats to get motivated. This will get them excited while we learn about cool science and social studies vocabulary while having an engaging hands on experience/lab. Plus, the lab coats can be used for many groups in the future as well. A never ending benefit for all students.  

 

Budget Narrative

The above is the lab coats for the students to use as well as diorama kits that they will build with their team.
