My students are the future leaders of tomorrow and are excited to participate in new learning experiences. They are eager to begin the challenge and excitement of physical science, but need the curriculum and tools suited for their age group. The first, second and third grade students visit my classroom for enrichment activities. They are very inquisitive and look forward to applying their learning to the real world situations which I create in the classroom.
My students come with a range of prior experiences and knowledge.
STEM activities require a different type of thinking as well as a lot of trial and error! It is very rewarding when a student uses their critical thinking skills to "think outside the box" and accomplish a goal. As a teacher, this is how I feel I can best prepare my students for the future.
Circuit Cubes were the #1 STEM toy of 2018. They teach important physical science concepts including circuits, energy transformation, simple machines and forces. These are all part of the elementary science curriculum. The jobs of tomorrow require innovation, creativity, and thinking outside the box.
These Circuit Cubes provide students the opportunity to learn all these things as well as our curriculum standards.
In addition, hands-on, inquiry-based science is engaging to a diverse population of students. This improves school attendance, behavior, social and emotional well-being of students. This will also inspire students to become engineers, inventors, and pursue other successful STEM job opportunities.
