Fifth Grade Circuits and Three-Dimensional Figures
Help me give my students hands-on manipulatives to learn about circuits. The magna tiles will help my students with three-dimensional shapes in math. The headphones are to help with our new science curriculum's online lessons.
I have two different groups of students for Reading, Math, and Science. I see two out of the five classes of fifth graders in my district. My class size is on average 25 students. Our district has a high free and reduced population. We are located in northern Minnesota only 20 miles from the headwaters of the Mississippi.
My student understanding grows leaps and bounds when my students are able to use hands on materials.
My students are molding their inquisitive minds with the use of manipulatives.
I chose the Magna Tiles to help my students with their three-dimensional shapes. My students have a difficult time spatially seeing how three dimensional shapes fold into nets of solids. The tiles allow us to build the shape, and then lay the pieces down to count the faces, edges, and vertices of the shape.
My science students will use the circuits to build and test circuits in our electricity unit in science.
I plan to use the five sets in small groups to give the students more opportunities to test their circuits.
The headphones are for my students who cannot afford headphones to use while listening to the new online lessons with our new science curriculum.
