I have the amazing opportunity of teaching upper-grade students in a hands-on science lab twice a week. We have fully implemented the Next Generation Science Standards and our lessons are phenomena based. Through this experience, students are able to take charge of their learning and investigate the world around them.
We are a Title One school with students who are highly motivated by technology, engineering, and tactile learning.
As an educator, I strive to provide opportunities for students to ask questions and solve their own problems. One way we do this is through interactive notebooks. These notebooks act as a journal to record observations, create models, and demonstrated three-dimensional learning.
Through Donors Choose I aim to provide students with more hands-on experiences that broken their cognitive thinking.
My project is to install a LEGO wall into our Science Lab. This wall will open a world of creative possibilities for my students. Building with Legos helps to promote creativity, develop problem-solving skills, and encourages teamwork.
Having a Lego wall allows the students to have their creative needs met and their imagination to come alive.
It gives students permission to be in charge of their own learning and experiences, by encouraging the freedom to express themselves.
The Lego Wall Project would reach three grade levels (4th, 5th, and 6th), over 300 students, and a multitude of learning needs.
