Constructing 3-Dimensional Understanding

My students need the 3-D doodler pen experience so we can bring our observations and reactions to social justice, architecture, earth science, and math to life.

My Students

I work in a trauma-informed community that practices mindfulness amidst, staff, students, and curriculum. We integrate the arts in all of our school subjects because we believe the arts enhance learning. The arts also gives us an opportunity to ensure culturally responsive pedagogy for our students. They get to make choices as to how they present what they learn, thus experiencing joy in their education. I joined this community a few years ago witnessing the magic that goes on here during school observations. At the time, I thought I had to be there. It was a flexible place focusing on the innovation our schools need to move forward in this century. Now, I am working with 5th grade students that can't get creation out of their minds! From singing, to poetry, to painting, to coloring, to building, they are constantly asking to create. I couldn't be happier to fulfill these requests as we dive deep into the inner workings of our world.

My Project

My students are constantly creating. Anything they get their hands on, they are making something with it.

I want to maximize on their talents and allow them to construct what we're learning in a variety of ways.

While we begin to understand matter and the particles of our universe, students will get to know the filaments that make up the pen.

They'll be able to create manipulative's to visualize our math concepts, create sculptures as reactions to social justice investigations/research, and give students the opportunity to experience new technology in art. For example, students have been obsessed with paper building and origami. I can take these skills further by allowing them to explore the concept of balancing these paper creations on top of 3-d structures, and bringing them together. However, the students would be creating a structure as an invention to produce better outcomes for plastic water bottle recycling during our Roles of Water unit. They will be able to see how fractions, physics, and real-life concepts connect, and could potentially change one corner of the world. These masterminds deserve a 3-Doodler !
