ELIDA – Elida Elementary fourth grade teacher Angela Spragg is the recipient of a Donors Choose Grant, and as a result received over $1,220 in classroom science project supplies. Donorschoose.org is a website that allows teachers in public schools to create projects and publish them. Anyone can help a classroom in need by donating to a project they like or inspires them. Donorschoose.org has been supporting teachers and students since 2000.
Spragg’s project was for science supplies and she received the following:
- 1 Smartboard lessons single user CD on Electricity and Magnetism
- 1 Electrictric Circuit Kit
- 6 triple beam balances
- 6 graduated cylindars (100 mL)
- 1 pack of 12 beakers (100 mL)
The total of the project was $1,229 and Mrs. Spragg received 14 donors. This is the second project she has submitted and been funded.
The students will be able to use these items to complete hands-on experiments to learn about a variety of standards for 4th grade curriculum, such as how energy transfers from hot to cold objects, how electricity and magnetism are related, how electrical circuits require a complete loop of materials, when matter changes state to total amount of matter remains consistent, and more. Mrs. Spragg says the students are very excited to have these new materials. Teachers all over the U.S. need help to bring their classroom dreams to life. http://www.donorschoose.org/
