Help me give my students STEM based science materials for our plant unit as well as a K'Nex kit and Lego base plates.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My classroom is filled with curious and diverse young learners who love to learn. My students are kind and love to collaborate and problem-solve as they engage in active learning.
Each day with my students brings new adventures and new experiences which we explore together.
It is my goal as a teacher to further extend the love of learning to my students so they are able to not only have successful academic careers but achieve their own personal goals and dreams.
I believe that it is important to bring real world, STEM based learning opportunities into the classroom. My class will very soon begin our plant unit in science. I would love to provide them the opportunity to grow their own plants. Students will use the grass seed and roasting pans to make their own "chia pet" during the STEM based unit.
The beauty of this project is that it will allow students to design their own product, observe and analyze its growth, while seeing plant parts, such as roots, that usually go unseen.
In addition to the plant unit materials, my students crave LEGO base plates and a K'NEX kit. The Lego base plates will provide student engineers a foundation to build upon rather than worrying about containing their loose Lego materials. Finally, the K'NEX kit will encourage students to use their imagination, problem solve, and build communication/team work skills as they work together to solve real world problems while learning concepts taught in our curriculum.
