My Students

My students are an eager and enthusiastic group of fifth graders. These students reside in a geographical area where resources are not always available or easily accessible. Our school is a Title One school with 100% of our students on free or reduced-price lunch. My students are striving for their own success and love to learn with hands-on activities. STEAM activities are perfect to help my students learn real world concepts. Students will also learn collaboration skills and problem solving skills- all important skills that will be needed for them to be successful in their future. I love how eager my students are to try new things and problem solve together.

My Project

Having available STEAM activities in my classroom will greatly enhance the learning of my students.

This project will get us started in our learning and practicing of 21st Century skills.

With the purchase of educational, standards based kits, my students will be on their way to a bright and collaborative future. My students will be able to learn more in a hands on way.

I have chosen kits where the students need to work collaboratively in order to solve a potential real world problem. Students will work together to solve a water crisis, to build bridges and how to use clean energy. All things that they will need to think about as they become the care takers of our world.
