Mrs. Held from South St Paul MN is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Full STEAM Ahead in 1st Grade!

My students need materials to be able to build on their creativity with STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). The best way for students to learn how the world works is through hands on activities!

My Students

The students in my classroom come from a diverse population in many ways including socially, economically and ability. One thing they all have in common is their curiosity and excitement for learning! As an International Baccalaureate school, we strive to enhance the natural inquisitiveness of children to make learning meaningful and to inspire students to take action in our world.

One of the most important goals I have for my students is to learn how to work with others in a positive way to be problem solvers.

My Project

With the various building materials in the project, my students will now have a dedicated area in our classroom to explore STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) ideas. Through out our school day, students will have the opportunity to go to this space, choose building supplies and explore how our world works. The stand up magnetic board will be especially helpful in giving students a new perspective for building. Students will be able to create roller coaster designs that allow them to test and revise their creation. They will also be to create different styles of buildings and figures using magna-builders, pyramid stackers, design blocks and more. Have a wide variety of building materials will allow the students to experiment with how different materials work and which may be best suited for a particular design.

Students will work cooperatively with their peers in this space.

This will allow students to build communication and interpersonal skills! My students will gain experience with Engineering Design Cycle with these materials.
