How to obtain the resource and its approximate cost

Educators should be familiar with the materials used within the classroom to provide students with scientific learning opportunities. Often, the teacher needs supplemental materials to provide rich, hands-on learning experiences.

This week you will write a 500-750 word letter to a principal requesting developmentally appropriate classroom resources for science instruction in a pre-K-3 classroom. Some ideas for this assignment may be a subscription to Brainpopjr or Mystery Science. NASA may also have some good ideas. https://www.nasa.gov/stem/foreducators/k-12/index.html

Include the following in your letter:

A rationale for using grade appropriate classroom resources, particularly technology, in early childhood science instruction to meet the needs of students and strengthen the learning environment.
A list of three developmentally appropriate classroom resources. At least one requested resource must be a technology that is interactive and can extend the possibilities for learning. For each resource include an explanation of the following:
How the resource facilitates scientific exploration and develops curiosity of students in the intended age range
How the resource helps engage students with different learning styles or preferences or who come from diverse backgrounds
How to obtain the resource and its approximate cost
Visuals may be used within this list to clarify materials.

Support your letter with at least three scholarly resources.
