My Students

My students are active learners, with many goals and too many challenges. Through these challenges, I continue to try new ways to get them to enjoy fifth grade and love learning. Whether it be, hands-on STEM activities or finding the right seating, I actively work towards reaching each student.

We are in a small, close-knit town located on the coast of Maine.

Several different towns build our school. We are known as the large elementary school in this area. However, we would be considered small by most areas. We have just under four hundred students PK-8. The majority of our students are involved in the free and reduced lunch program.

My projects will not only benefit my present students, but many years to come.

My Project

Fifth graders enjoy creating and building. In STEAM they come together with their own individual ideas, and sometimes need to work together to create one project. This involves a lot of teamwork and I feel that these kits will give some guidance to help them along their way.

I am asking for multiple KNEX Education Introduction to Bridges Sets because my students will be able to build, test, and reconfigure their bridge designs.

We will be able to combine math, science, and STEAM during these activities. These items will also be able to be used for many years to come.
