  • My Class Needs a light table and manipulatives to enhance our explorations

    Launched August 2nd, 2017 Project Deadline December 31st, 2017
    Classroom Size 20 Students School Size 457 Students

    My Students

    I have a fabulous class of energetic and curious 4 and 5 year-olds. They love to be able to get their hands on materials and do their best learning when they are immersed and exploring the materials rather than listening or working at their tables. The school is in an area that is considered to be inner-city, so while there is a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds within the student population, the majority of the families are not well off.

    How will this project impact them?

    Having a light table and manipulatives to use with it would allow my students the opportunity to explore a wide variety of concepts. Magnetic tiles are a fantastic way for students to explore different geometric shapes while learning how those shapes affect what they are able to construct. Coloured manipulatives can be combined, allowing students to learn about colour mixing in a hands-on manner. Light tables also lend themselves to endless moments of discovery and exploration throughout the school year. For example, we might explore the structure of leaves by using the light table to help us look at their vein structure, or discover new creatures when we use the table to closely observe water collected from a nearby pond.
