Creative Learning Through STEM Bins

My Students

My Fourth grade students are creative and eager to learn. They work so well together in pairs or in teams. My students are ready to build things and create things creatively. I have more girls than boys but all love to build something.

I have amazing students who are ready to learn and grow throughout the year.

I have a full class of 28 eager 4th graders who can't wait to learn and dig deeper into their education.

The school that I am at is a neighborhood school, so many kids walk or ride their bikes to school. The school is a Title I school with free and reduced-price lunch.

My Project

Using STEM Bins in my classroom will allow my students to use critical thinking and creative discoveries.

My students will be working in pairs and groups to focus on problem solving and putting different ideas to try.

My class will be able to use these during their Morning Choice time which is about 20-30 minutes at the beginning of the day.

Building critical thinkers and strong problem solvers will help my students come face to face with any challenges the may come across and have the skills needed to work through it. These are all life skills needing to get started TODAY.
