My Students

My students are resilient and unique. We have a fun and lively classroom that encourages experimenting, creativity and exploring. My students love to sit, collaborate and create together each day. They ask questions, find solutions and communicate their thinking.

We grow through each experiment, each time we fail and each time we succeed.

No matter the obstacle, whether inside or outside the classroom, we strive to continue our journey in education. This project will enhance our environment and encourage even more exploration.

My Project

Students crave opportunities to use their imaginations. Through these materials, my students will have the ability to collaborate, build and communicate while testing theories using these manipulatives.

My students enjoy taking the lead and being in charge of their learning.

I want my students to feel in control in their creations, and with these materials, students can work independently and in teams. My students are more engaged and focused when they can express themselves.

My students have already shown an interest and passion for these projects and these additional products will enrich our learning and exploration through science and engineering.
