About this Grantee

To motivate and challenge students, Ms. Nevarez and her partners create investigation teams for sixth grade students to teach science concepts such as microorganisms and space to third graders. Sixth grade students master a concept and create an appropriate experiment, activity, or demonstration to teach the third grade students during weekly rotating science centers. The older students also assist with accurate data recording, science vocabulary, observations, descriptions, and presentations of findings using technology.
