I am currently a 3rd grade teacher in a small school in North Carolina. It is important that 3rd graders learn to work together and problems solve. I am constantly looking for ways for my 3rd graders to work together to build and work cooperatively together. I have found that while creating workable fun objects, they enjoy working with each other. K'nex are a great way to do this. Not only are the students working together (Communication skills) but they must follow a diagram (science skill), work with shapes, sizes and construction (Math skills) but then they need to write a prospective on the projects success and how they can improve their productivity (English skill). The groups can either create a diagrammed object or create their own and then market it during our K'nex auction (Social Studies). As you can see through the use of K'nex and other building materials we are having fun but learning so much. It is an excellent fun filled learning environment and students don't want to miss a day of school (my dream!!). They enjoy coming to my class. Please help me allow my student to create even more great inventions and buildings. I truly want to expand this project and I need more K'nex to do this. It is such an amazing way to learn and with your help we can create an amazing learning environment for students for years to come.
