My students need Keva Structures and LEGO sets to incorporate STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) into our daily curriculum.
My students are wonderful, smart first graders! They are eager to learn about the world around them. Every child is unique. Most first graders are in perpetual motion - squirming while sitting, busy noise in a classroom, wanting to make friends, thriving on encouragement, and learning best through discovery.
Our school is a small public, rural school with 261 students enrolled for daily instruction.
It is in a rural community of 10,046 residents, with a very industrial economy. The school provides collaboration opportunities, differentiated strategies, and a positive learning environment for the students. The community supports education through volunteering, small grant funding, hosting field trips, and donating supplies.
The educational and enrichment activities offered through STEM enhance the first grade curriculum.
Donations to this project will allow students to have access to Keva Structures and LEGO Sets.
The activities offered will be hands-on instruction, with an emphasis on STEM. Students will be able to create, design, and implement a plan with each block set. Students will be able to test and improve the plan, by adding or deleting blocks. The block sets will allow for various group work (individual, small group, and whole group).
Critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity are skills that are strengthened by hands-on learning. By studying the subjects of STEM, students are learning important problem solving skills. Students will be encouraged to explore and discover new things about engineering!
