Students learn best when they learn hands on! When students can build and create, THAT is when learning comes to life.
My goal is to incorporate STEM learning into my classroom.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math. According to a variety of websites, STEM learning turns students into critical thinkers, increases science/math literacy, and creates the next generation of innovators!
Compared to other countries, the US has math and science scores that are behind! I would love to have space in my classroom where students are free to build, invent, and create. I believe with a building section in my classroom, that we can change these scores! Let's get away from worksheets and move towards STEM-based learning.
Help me create an amazing hands-on learning section on my classroom!
Incorporating STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) in the classroom will turn students into critical learners. STEM learning involved hands-on learning experiences for the students that they will not get from a worksheet.
Our students learn best when they are engaged and they are building with their peers.
It is our job as teachers to foster our students' creativity and innovative skills that they will need for the future, in the classroom! With items like building blocks, LEGO bricks, magnetic blocks, and more, students are able to go outside of the lines to create things like pyramids, robots, and other structures. After creating a structure my goal is to incorporate math and science. For example, after creating a pyramid, students can measure them and find the area and perimeter. Now that is how learning should be done!
