Mrs. Akina from Kenosha WI is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Having Fun While Learning...Making 3-D Models

Help me give my students the opportunity to make models with the TECBOSS 3D Pen's. Being hands-on allows students to engage in kinesthetic learning and understand potential gaps in learning.

My Students

I work at an urban high school serving approximately 1500 students. Many of our students are economically disadvantaged, qualify for free and reduced breakfast/lunch, and have experienced trauma in their lives. Our student population is a diverse blend of cultures and ethnicities. This cultural diversity enriches the classroom and allows them to have an opportunity to learn from people with different backgrounds and upbringings leading to increased innovation and collaboration. Planning lessons that reflect the diversity of the classroom ensures all students have equal access to opportunities and participation.

My Project

Students will be able to gain an understanding of the 3-D nature of cells, tissues, organs, and bones by making models. Hands-on learning activates kids' brains, and model making can enable teachers to engage students in learning experiences that result in improved understanding of a topic. As students put projects together, create models, or use familiar materials in new ways, they're constructing meaning. "Kids learn through all their senses," says Ben Mardell, PhD, a researcher with Project Zero at Harvard University, "and they like to touch and manipulate things." When you combine activities that require movement, talking, and listening, it activates multiple areas of the brain. If a student is drawing and explaining to a peer, then they're making connections in the brain!
