Second-graders Juan Hurtado, left, and Ben Hendrix share colored pencils to draw and write a description of what they see in the big screen microscope, the blue machine at right, in class at Avalon Elementary School on Friday in Naples. The microscope was purchased by their teacher with a grant given through DonorsChoose.org. Teachers in Naples and elsewhere are turning to websites like DonorsChoose.org and classwish.org to raise money for projects and classroom supplies. At some schools, they also list the supplies they need online and ask for donations.
