Celebrating Black History Month

This project is part of the Black History Month celebration because it supports a Black teacher or a school where the majority of the students are Black.

My Students

The school I work at has a 97% of the students on free or reduced lunch. We are a title I school. My students love STEAM activities and projects. They enjoy hands on activities including art and music in addition to Reading, Writing, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Our population has regretfully our students have not been exposed to many things that students at other schools have been. This adds to a lot of deficits and remediation.

Hands-on and project based learning is a proven teaching method that increases student learning as well as the application of the learning to real life situations.

However, hands-on and project based learning can become very taxing to a classroom's budget or more often the teacher's personal budget.

My Project

Todays student is not just a learner of information. These students will not be ask to recall facts and figures but they will be ask to think critically, collaborate, communicate and be creative in the work force. I can teach fact after fact but that does not prepare students for the future.

These STEAM projects will allow all my students to experience project based and hands on learning successfully.

While focusing on the project the students will also learn valuable skills that will insure success in the work place of the future.

Funding of these Ozobots will allow the students to learn how to code and learn that technology is not all about games but has practical applications as well. The engineering items will help increase the student's creativity and communication skills. The items in this project will simply make the students in my class better people and learners for the future.
