My Students

My kids are so eager to learn and very inquisitive. Every time I tell them what we are learning, they get excited and their excitement is contagious. They ask questions when they don't understand. During the delivery of a lesson or when I'm reading a book, they will ask what a word means if they are unclear.

When we learn about science, it is through books or videos.

My students attend a Title I school. My classroom has no science kits.

My Project

I have selected the STEM kits from Lakeshore because they will help my students question and learn, while having fun! They will learn teamwork, as well, because they will be working in groups to complete the STEM activities. Isn't that what we all want for our students?

These STEM kit activities will provide multiple ways of improving my student's learning by doing, not just listening or watching.

I know that this is the best way for students to learn fist hand. They will use multiple modalities in order to complete these STEM activities. Imagine how much more excited my students could be with these kits!
