As school starts, teachers are scrambling to acquire the supplies they need, often paying their own money. Donors Choose lets teachers submit projects that need funding. Donors can pick an idea they want to fund.
For example, Mrs. N wants science kits and books for her low-income elementary students in South Carolina to use with their parents.
I need 3 commercial science kits, 1 magnet lab kit, and 3 sets of science concept books that can be taken apart and made into 20 individual take home science experiment kits for my students to check out, take home, conduct experiments, and report their finding to the class. This exploration will not only reinforce classroom instruction in magnetism, force and motion, simple machines, and matter, but the process will expand student learning through family participation.
$492 would fund the project.
Mr. S wants to buy comic books to motivate his Texas middle-school students, who are learning English.
My goal is to put quality comic books, that are easy to read, but require high academic skills and rigor, into the hands of my students. Research has shown that while easier to read than “regular novels,” comic books actually require higher order thinking skills to understand.
He needs $546.
