Learning Teamwork Through Engineering!
Help me give my students the opportunity to experiment through engineering as they explore simple machines. These kits include pulleys, levers and gears and will give my students the opportunity to create, design, build, and work together!
I have 38 of the most persevering and deserving 4th graders on the planet. Many of them come from homes that are below the poverty line, but they show up at school every day ready to learn and give me their very best selves. They are fun, kind, curious and hardworking.
My students learn the best when they are able to fully engage in their own learning through hands on activities that allow them to explore.
They learn and grow so much through trying new things, make discoveries and reflect on their experiences.
These K'Nex kits will give my students the opportunity to work together toward a common goal. Students will have to work in teams to come up with a plan, experiment and build simple machines. They will succeed, fail and persevere as they learn and engage with the K'nex simple machines gears, pulleys and levers kits.
Through these activities my students will grow in their knowledge of engineering, gain a boost in confidence, and learn perseverance as they grow socially and emotionally.
These types of activities also help to motivate my students to come to school each day, instilling a love for learning and the importance of education.
