Figuring Things Out in Fourth Grade!

Help me give my students supplies to enhance their math and science experiences in school. In fourth grade we study magnetism as well as multiplication and division, and these games and magnets will enhance their learning experience.

My Students

The school where I teach is a school with children from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds, types of families, and communities. We are located on the outskirts of Los Angeles and our families want their children to have a hands on, interactive learning experience.

The students in our school yearn for an engaging, hands-on STEAM curriculum!

These fourth graders are eager to get their hands dirty while exploring the world around them, and are not afraid of making mistakes. Just as Rosie's grandmother says in the book, Rosie Revere Engineer, it is not a failure, it is just a flop. Our students are well aware of the fact that flops lead to successes, and it takes reevaluating and revising one's work in order to find the answers that they are looking for

My Project

My students learn best with hands-on experiences. The whiteboards will give them the opportunity to brainstorm their work without wasting paper. The multiplication bingo, and division bingo games will provide a new strategy to help the students achieve their math fact fluency. By mastering their multiplication and division fact, and students can better solve math problems in the real world.

Magnetism is one of the students' favorite science units of the year!

This magnet kit will provide the students with a hands-on opportunity to explore the magic of magnetism in a STEAM focused classroom and in the world around them.
