Goal

The goal is to provide hands on experiences that help students understand the standards in a fun and engaging way. 

 

What will be done with my students

The students will participate in a variety of experiments and create homes for different local insect life to explore the habitats and life cycle of each. Students will work together and discuss their findings to explore and come to conclusions.  

 

Benefits to my students

Students will benefit from being motivated and engaged. The experiments will promote deeper discussions that will help the students create their own questions and enhance inquiry skills.  

 

Budget Narrative

The items we are requesting for purchase will be used to perform monthly hands on experiments aligned with our first grade science curriculum standards. Supplemental materials will be purchased by our allotted grade level science budget and individual teachers' personal funds. Some of the items are non consumable and will be able to be used in future years.
