The purpose of our grant was to encourage students to become motivated learners by providing resources for students to investigate science and social studies topics. Each student from grades one through four were provided a folder with TEKS-based science and social studies questions from which they chose to investigate. In our internet-driven world, students have fewer opportunities to investigate questions using resources such as an almanac, an atlas, and an encyclopedia. These resources will remind students there are many options for finding information. By supplying students with interesting topic choices and research materials and encouraging them to discover fascinating information, we instill in them the enjoyment of learning for the sake of learning.
