My students have a stagger start as a large population of students eat breakfast at school. I would like to have a STEM bin area in my classroom as an alternative to morning work. STEM stands for Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics. I envision the plastic tubs stored in the cart that I am requesting. The plastic tubs will house the building items. Typical building resources for STEM bins include: toothpicks, play doh, styrofoam balls and popsicle sticks. The STEM activities will allow students to work alone or with partners to use the different materials to inspire their creativity in the engineering and mathematics fields. The activities will be hands on and allow students to get actively engaged in learning the moment that they walk through the door. I believe that by offering materials that are engaging the student's creativity, it will allow them to ease into the morning with an enthusiasm for science and math. Some of the items that will be used in the bins such as Legos and Magnashapes are items that many of my students do not get the benefit of having at their own homes. These items would not fit in the budget for the families. This will be an added draw for the students. They will get to use building supplies that they think are cool to apply building and structure science in our classroom. The Stem bins will also contain items that can be used to meet sensory needs. The floam and sensory sand can also be used as a calming tool. I believe the stem bins will quickly become a highlight of our classroom. Providing a foundation on structures and building concepts could encourage students to seek further education and pursue careers in architecture, draft
