Mrs. Pease's first grant is the QSM Grant for $725.00 and will be used to provide her students with hands-on laboratory investigations. Students will be able to use microscopes to look at a variety of items by preparing their own slides as well as using pre-made slides. They will also learn how to calculate magnification, write scientific laboratory reports and then present their findings.
Her second grant is the Sydney Biedenharn Educators’ Endowment Grant for $2,401.00. This is a highly competitive grant awarded to only 12 teachers. Mrs. Pease will use the funding to provide interactive activities to learn about macromolecules and osmosis using virtual labs with Chromebooks provided by the grant. Mrs. Pease is looking forward to the instant feedback for students and teacher provided by the online Science resources.
Overall Mrs. Pease has earned a total of $3,126.00 in grant funding this school year to engage students in the classroom with the use of hands-on activities and technology.
Congratulations, Mrs. Pease!
