Mrs. Cavin from Jacksonville FL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Hands On! Creative Force and Motion!

Help me give my students a full STEM experience. We cannot share materials this year so we are in need of more kits.

My Students

We are a Title 1 Science Technology and Math school located in the East Arlington area of Jacksonville, Fl. My students are both neighborhood students and magnet students. 75% of my students are free lunch. What I love most of the students I teach are their creative minds. They are so open minded when it comes to competing STEM projects. I can tell which students have been with me since Kindergarten and which have just come into the school. The students who have been in the school longer than six months get it... They let their creativity flow.

My Project

Being the STEM magnet teacher and the 2019-2020 Teacher of the Year at Lone Star Elementary I have to keep the creativity going even in this different school setting. Students in grades 3-5 are required to meet standards that include force, motion, and gravity. Within the STEM setting students complete engineering projects that relate to what is being taught in the classroom. Students will be using the STEM kits to learn about the standards while using engineering skills to create mechanisms to show what they have learned about force, motion and gravity. These materials will be shared with Virtual learners via teacher demos with the intent that they create a similar tool at home to share with the class...
