Help me give my students a hands on experience of creating simple and powered machines. This will be the start of our Lego collection. We hope to use this Simple & Powered Machine Set with small groups of students during indoor recess.
My third grade class is made up of 99% black and Latino students. Approximately 85% of my students are English Language Learners. These students come from various backgrounds both culturally and economically.
This year these students are quickly becoming lovers of coding and STEAM activities and I would like to keep the fire in their bellies burning!
These student are natural risk takers and have an appetite for learning. I want to be able to give these students additional hands on experiences with the successes, trials and tribulations of coding and STEAM.
Our 3rd grade students are loving their experience of coding and exploring the world of STEAM activities. We would like to continue to expose them to activities that challenge them in new ways. These challenges are not only increasing student interest in Math and Science, but in school in general.
With Winter coming, the idea is to use their recess period to challenge them with different STEAM activities when weather is bad and they can't go outside.
These activities would be loosely structured to build on one another. I will be combining this Simple and Powered Machines Set with the last STEAM Kit donated to my class in the past.
