STEM Bins are plastic boxes filled with an engineering manipulative of your choice, such as LEGO bricks, pattern blocks, Dixie cups, toothpicks and playdough, or popsicle sticks with Velcro. The boxes also contain sets of task cards that picture a variety of basic real world structures to inspire students to build. Stem Bins will provide my students various learning opportunities once they complete an assignment. When my students finish early, instead of giving early finishers more work, I can give them more meaningful work with STEM Bins. Take their learning to the next level and challenge students to measure their structure, test its weight, or turn it into something useful. They can also write about their structure or use laptops to create a picture collage or how-to video. STEM Bins are perfect to fill those small transitions and windows of time between lessons because clean-up is a snap. I can also use the STEM Bins as an incentive to arrive to school on time. STEM Bins are a wonderful way to engage and “wake up” those little brains each morning, especially if your students arrive in the classroom at varying times. This is also a great time to allow students to collaborate with partners.
