Learners on the Move

Help me give my students opportunities for interactive learning by incorporating relays and active learning stations to reinforce science and math concepts that are taught in the classroom.

My Students

My students are joyful learners who love to move. They are a diverse group of low-income students who all love experiential learning.

My students love to learn new concepts in fun and creative ways.

They attend a Title 1 school that doesn't have a budget for physical education supplies. Rotating them through learning centers will allow them to work with their peers in a small group setting. The teacher can rotate among groups to facilitate the learning. My students love to create things of their very own. This gives them ownership of their own learning.

My Project

I am asking for a variety of resources including play doh, Legos, clay and markers. My students will learn what makes up matter by using legos to build different structures in a fun relay game. Students will creatively build examples of animals in the North Carolina region with Crayola Model Magic. Students will use markers to write to reinforce what they have learned. They love the "scented" markers which the will use to illustrate concepts learned in science and math. Examples are 100 chart relay, geometric shapes, maps and graphs.

The materials from this project will be used in small group brain quest activities which incorporate movement to reinforce what is learned in the classroom curriculum.

The gym will be used so students will have space to move and rotate between active learning centers. Students will have an art opportunity to create with model magic and playdough, build with Legos, and write and graph with the markers. Relays will also be incorporated to increase the movement.

One basketball math activity utilizing the markers is as follows: Students will take ten shots. They will write how many baskets they made out of ten as a fraction, decimal, and percent. Younger children will write it as word, number and picture form.
