Help me give my students LEGO STEM kits to stir their imaginations. I am wanting to introduce my students to simple machines and then allow them to continue at their own pace into powered machines and pneumatics.
I work in a Title 1 school, which means we have a large concentration of low-income families. We also have a high percentage of non-English speaking kids/families. Our teachers and staff work extremely hard to make sure we are setting our students up for success. Our school is a model school of academic excellence that empowers all students to find their passion and purpose in life through the development of a strong collaborative partnership with home and community.
Our mission is to teach purposefully, learn daily, and love unconditionally in a safe, caring, and respectful environment.
Each day students have a 45 min. block of intervention/enrichment; most students are involved in teacher led small groups but some of my students are in need of independent learning activities to bolster what we are already learning during whole group. One thing I have noticed about my 4th graders is how much they love to design and build. I want to foster this learning and provide them the materials to grow this interest.
LEGO has created these wonderful kits complete with lesson guides and materials to help students build confidence in STEAM and STEM learning.
I want to encourage students to explore, take risk and learn through purposeful play!
