Help me give my students STEM materials such as building planks to encourage exploration and active play.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My fourth grade students are willing to try new activities and are excited at the possibilities of what they could learn. They strive to have a greater understanding in the world around them. These students have varied backgrounds, but their culture is what keeps them connected. The Native American culture is rich in the area where our school is located and is a vital part of learning.
In my classroom, we focus on being safe to make mistakes during learning, having integrity when interacting with others, and having a positive learning experience.
This allows them to feel safe while learning new topics and finding out how to be successful cooperatively and independently.
The enthusiasm shown in learning is evident through cooperative learning projects which vary between teacher and student developed topics.
My students are active learners who appreciate the opportunity to explore and problem solve in their learning. They need more options in the classroom through the use of STEM materials.
The STEM materials will allow for play, cooperation, and team building in the classroom.
If they are given the opportunity, they will be able to not only utilize the materials in unique ways, but it will also encourage a deeper connection with their peers as they problem solve their way through the use of the materials in team building activities. These materials will be used through free play as well as developing their vocabulary and problem solving skills in multiple subjects.
