My students need a variety of hands-on materials like LEGOs, Pine Planks, and dominoes to stock a set of "STEAM Bins", a fantastic learning resource for developing creative and cooperative problem-solving skills.

Hooray! This project is fully funded
My second grade class is part of a rural elementary school in Southern Oregon, where many children come from low-income families, and all students receive free breakfast and lunch. Each year my students' academic abilities range from talented and gifted to struggling with basic skills in the areas of math and/or language arts.
Our school mascot is the hornet, and our classroom, like a hive of hornets, is working together to forge a team spirit, with each class member participating in and contributing to a productive learning experience.
I want to provide a set of "STEAM Bins" for my classroom. Brooke Brown, from Teachers Pay Teachers, has created "STEAM Bins", a wonderful classroom idea/resource that includes teacher instructions, student direction cards, and colorful labels. I will fill standard plastic school boxes with different materials, such as LEGOS, wooden cubes, math cubes, magnetic blocks, small wooden planks, straws, foam balls, and toothpicks. These bins, when coupled with a variety of project direction cards, will offer students a multitude of hands-on learning experiences.
"STEAM Bins" will promote cooperation and creative problem-solving in my second graders, as they work in pairs to develop unique solutions for each project challenge.
I look forward to assembling this resource and making it available for my class.
