Picture this: 100 first grade students all trying to create inventions that could someday help others! From ways to keep track of lost pencils, to discovering which methods keep chocolate from melting, this first-grade group of 100 students is curious and inquisitive!
They love building, discovering how things work, and are learning the importance of becoming critical thinkers, creative innovators, communicators, leaders, and collaborators.
You can often find them using Legos or blocks to create a new setting for a story, or creating a new musical instrument based on the principals of sound. All with the confidence and determination that any future employer desires. These kiddos have big plans for their futures!
Our first-grade team is requesting funding for an innovative grant that will provide our classrooms with a wide range of STEM activities. This project will provide our students with materials to support opportunities that best individualize their learning in the 21st century.
Through the use of these STEM kits and rich, informational STEM-based texts, our students will develop the important qualities they need to become successful adults.
This project provides opportunities to apply their learning in a hands-on, problem based learning situations with real-world application. With these resources, we will be able to bridge the gap and provide relevant, cross-curricular activities for our students, giving them the tools they need to become critical thinkers, collaborators, leaders, creative innovators, and communicators.
