My Students

My students love hands-on learning in an outdoor environment! The students in all of my classes are inquisitive, engaged learners. They want to get in there and use materials through projects and hands on learning. They also want to work outdoors!

I work with some great fourth and fifth grade scholars that are excited to use hands-on materials outdoors.

My students want to engage in learning through fun, educational, and hands-on materials in the outdoors!

Hands-on learning and project based learning often require bringing it outdoors! My students need outdoor specific items in order to engage in outdoor math and science.

My Project

These materials will allow me to bring Math and Science Labs Outside. My students have been doing some amazing math and science this year, but often our projects need MORE SPACE in order to do the projects properly.

Sometimes it's best to move the Math and Science Outside!

The mats will be designated spaces for each of my 5 STEM groups to work on whatever projects we have going. The outdoor clipboards will be perfect for them to use to record data and graph results. Not only will moving outside provide us with the space necessary to complete some of our projects, it will also give them a different view while learning.
