Mrs. Fauland from Lake Stevens WA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.
My students need K'NEX Education STEM Roller Coaster building sets to explore the physics of roller coasters and expand their knowledge of simple machines.
"Creativity is the secret sauce to science, technology, engineering and math." - Ainissa Rameirez.
My room is full of inquisitive students.
Our classroom is an ever changing environment as we strive to reach Common Core standards while still enjoying the process. One of my greatest goals is to help my students learn how to further their learning by asking their own questions and also how to seek the answers.
My students are amazingly determined at a Title I school. We have adopted a growth mindset this year which states that anyone can learn anything. Students truly take this to heart and rise to each and every challenge they encounter.
At our school approximately 35% of our students receive a lunch that is either free or at a reduced price. My students have never let this slow them down. School is a level playing field for them and they eagerly take advantage of the support and wealth of knowledge they receive. In my room, we focus on learning while having fun. We love to laugh and explore concepts authentically. I seek to create lessons and design activities that my students will enjoy.
I do a Chemist Carnival room transformation where we explore physical and chemical changes by making carnival food. To expand this room transformation and stick with the carnival theme we are going to bring in the physics behind carnival games.
I can't take my students to a see a real roller coaster, but I can bring a miniature K'NEX one to them!
By building and looking at this miniaturized version of a roller coaster my students can analyze what makes it work. This engaging STEM lesson will continue as students have the opportunity to use different materials and apply their new knowledge as they build their own marble roller coaster. These K'NEX STEM Roller Coaster sets would greatly increase the engagement in my classroom as we embark on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) ideas.
