Could I write grants for this stuff or ask for donations from parents? Sure. But wouldn't it be nice if there was a significant budget for science lab materials so that teachers didn't have to choose between spending their own cash or begging for materials for every lab?

Not even finished with my first unit in my new science curriculum and I've already (1). spent all of the money the school has to give me for lab supplies and (2). reached into my own pocket for another $175. I'm keeping a record this year of the amount of personal $ that I spend.

Also, in my experience, the time spent in managing poor behaviors/fallout from poor choices far exceeds the value of the device. It's a transaction cost that's not worth paying.

I totally get that, Pal...but with the crush of things that I am supposed to teach already, I just don't have time to add those lessons too. For me, it's a "if you expect me to teach this, what are you taking off my plate?"
