Goal

To offer my students a fun and meaningful bridge from instruction to experimentation via hands-on, minds-on learning centers. These instant learning centers are teacher friendly, easy to assemble, allow for differentiated instruction, and work in conjunction with our first-grade science curriculum. 

 

What will be done with my students

These teacher friendly learning centers are designed to allow groups of four students to explore, discover, and learn together or work independently. Each set can be used through the school year as we tackle each topic. Teachers and students can also track their progress. 

 

Benefits to my students

Ensuing mastery of science skills and concepts learned through exploring, discovery, and discussion. Leading to improved scores on i-Ready testing for this current school year as well as increased scores for future standardized tests.
SC.1.N.1.1 Raise questions about the natural world, investigate them in teams through free exploration, and generate
appropriate explanations based on those explorations.
SC.1.N.1.2 Using the five senses as tools, make careful observations, describe objects in terms of number, shape, texture, size, weight, color, and motion, and compare their observations with others.
SC.1.L.17.1 Through observation, recognize that all plants and animals, including humans, need the basic necessities of air, water, food, and space.
SC.1.L.14.2 Identify the major parts of plants, including stem, roots, leaves, and flowers.
SC.1.L.16.1 Make observations that plants and animals closely resemble their parents, but variations exist among
individuals within a population.
SC.1.P.13.1 Demonstrate that the way to change the motion of an object is by applying a push or a pull.
SC.1.P.8.1 Sort objects by observable properties, such as size, shape, color, temperature (hot or cold), weight (heavy or light), texture, and whether objects sink or float. 

 

Budget Narrative

This budget includes 5 complete sets – one for each member on my teaching team. (Note: I had trouble submitting for 5 sets because it exceeds the grant request by $145.00. Therefore I took one set off this request.)
