My students need the transportation STREAM materials to support science, technology, reading, engineering, arts, and math. The Kid K'Nex transportation kit will allow them to create multiple transportation models.
Our school is a Title 1 school with a low socio-economic and transient population. 99% of the children receive free/reduced lunch. Students are provided food bags for the weekends. The school has a family resource center to support families. Many of our students are faced with social and emotional instability situations. In spite of this, they are excited and eager to learn.
Play gives children a chance to practice what they are learning...They have to play with what they know to be true in order to find out more, and then they can use what they learn in new forms of play.
The STREAM materials will give students opportunities to be creative, collaborate, increase critical thinking and problem solve, create hands-on-learning experience, show the value of art as well as explore STEM fields.
The transportation books will give students opportunities to explore different modes of transportation with engaging photographs.
They will also learn about traffic signs and safe travel.
The STEM materials: build an airplane and a waterway, engineering pack as well as the Kid K"Nex transportation kit will build on children’s natural curiosity by providing the materials and freedom to explore. Children explore, ask questions, and discuss their findings naturally. When we build a foundation of knowledge and a love of STREAM this can be fostered and built upon for all students through years of education.
