Mrs. C. from Washington UT is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Creativity and Critical Thinking Through STEM

My students need hands on materials that will help them engage in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) concepts. These items will help encourage the use of 21st Century Learning Skills.

My Students

I teach 1st Grade at a Title I school in Utah. My students are very active and enjoy learning "outside the box". We are moving away from traditional paper pencil teaching, into a new world of hands on and creative learning.

My students are creative, imaginative, and full of wonder.

Each day, they bring new excitement to learning and continually surprise me. They inspire me to be the best teacher I can be in order to encourage them to be the best learner they can be.

I am so lucky and thankful for each one of them. It humbles me to know that I have the privilege to help them discover, explore, investigate, imagine, question, and ultimately love learning.

My Project

First grade students learn best when they are engaged with hands on materials. I have chosen items such as LEGO, Gears, Coding, and Building Blocks that will help encourage students to use problem solving skills, collaboration and teamwork, creativity and imagination, and critical thinking skills.

When my students are engaged in STEM activities with hands on materials, I see a beautiful sense of wonder, imagination, and critical thinking.

We are preparing students for jobs that have yet to be created. It is my job as an educator to encourage learning in ways that will help my students be prepared for their future.
