My Students

My students are 21st-century learners who are constantly seeking knowledge. They are growing up in a fast paced informational world. Most of their day is spent inside a classroom in a sedentary way. When they are given opportunities to move around and stimulate their brains, they get energized and excited about the things they still have to learn. My students need STEM based learning resources. These tools will be used to challenge their creative thinking in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math.

My Project

My students are creative learners who are looking for fun ways to stretch their brains. I am asking for multiple games including iTrax Critical Thinking, Color Cubed Strategy Game , Shape by Shape Creative Patterns Game , 3D Brain Teaser Puzzles, and Cat Crimes Logic Game. My students will be able to explore the games independently for daily brain warm ups, and with groups to work on strategizeing and team building.

The resources from this project will provide limitless opportunities for my students to exercise their minds while engaging in unique learning tasks.

I am asking for several books including Brain Games for Clever Kids, Brain Teasers, and Difficult Riddles for Smart Kids to provide quick daily brain challenges that develop problem solving and critical thinking. Students will be able to collaborate with each other to discuss strategies for solving the problems and work together to be more efficient in the tasks as the year progresses. I am also requesting a presentation remote that will allow my students to shine a spotlight or magnifying glass on their digital presentation to make standing up in front of a crowd more fun and engaging.
