WLSEF Teacher Grants In Action
Grants from WLSEF to West Lafayette teachers have helped to support innovative and unique projects throughout our schools. Katie Dodds, a 4th grade teacher at Happy Hollow Elementary, received funding in 2014 for her project, Keeping Student Learning on Track: Using Race Cars and other Hands-on Activities to Reinforce Concepts about Motion. Katie writes, “At the end of our science unit on motion, my students had a much better understanding of the many scientific terms discussed such as relative motion, reference point, velocity, force, friction, drag, and thrust…The students were eager to start science each day, and I was just as excited to teach while using these materials.”
