    My Students

    The class of grades 4 and 5 are diverse, energetic, and are fascinated with the world around them, particularly curious about science. Several students have difficulties with learning, written output, attention and focus. As a result, students need to discover science by doing experiments, asking questions, working together, and learn and share with one another, while the teacher will act as a facilitator. By touching, trying, manipulating science, their knowledge will develop.

    How will this project impact them?

    With the requested resources, students will tangibly develop scientific questions as related to the science curriculum; machines are devices that transfer force and energy. Students will cooperatively design projects, make predictions and inferences and reflect on whether their investigations were fair tests. My goal as their teacher is to engage my students with science concepts by allowing them to touch, play, experiment and work together. When students are engaged with their learning at school it will positively impact their sense of curiosity and their creative and critical thinking abilities.
