The materials that I am requesting for my students will be geared toward science discovery learning. The materials will be divided up into learning bins, and the STEM bins will have materials that will inspire the students to construct something using task cards. STEM Bins are plastic, clear boxes filled with an engineering manipulative, such as Gears!, Magic Connectors, Star Puzzle Connecting Pieces, unifix cubes, toothpicks and playdough, or popsicle sticks with velcro on the ends. The boxes also contain small sets of task cards on metal rings that picture a variety of basic engineering structures. These STEM Bins will then be placed on an easily accessible shelf in the classroom. When students’ regular classwork is complete, they can take one STEM Bin at a time and learn as an engineer. They will use the materials in the box to construct as many different structures on the cards as they can. Students will be engaged in creative, complex tasks and are encouraged to think like inventors. Kinesthetic learners, spatial learners, and logical learners will love exploring the different possibilities for the building materials as they try to construct more challenging structures. By incorporating STEM bins into my classroom, it will provide my students the chance to explore the world of Science in an exploratory way. This will also provide engaging activities for students that finish tests and other activities early. Science is such an important part of the classroom today and providing them with STEM learning opportunities will help prepare them for the future.
