To help my students advance their academic learning and overall well-being amid the pandemic, my PK-8th grade S.T.E.M. classes would benefit greatly by being able to use hands on building manipulative's to encourage their minds to problem solve as they develop critical thinking skills. The most favorite STEM centers that I currently have in my classroom are the two small sets of Legos and building bricks that all my classes have to share. Because they share the same set of building blocks, my multi-age students are never able to complete or save their projects to complete during the next time I have their class. I have had many students hide their projects around my classroom in an effort to keep it until their next class period. Unfortunately, few of these building projects make it until the next class period. To make an upcoming unit more engaging, my upper elementary students would love to actually get some hands-on experience with snap circuits in their efforts to understand the difference between an open and closed circuit, a parallel circuit and a series circuit. To bring my dream learning activity to life, I’d love to have a multi-age engineering exhibit, while using as many different S.T.E.M. building kits as possible. My dream is to teach my multi-age students that it’s okay to make mistakes and to adapt and overcome is success!
