Mrs. Williams from Auburn AL is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the most trusted classroom funding site for teachers.

Let’s Go With LEGO

My students need these LEGO educational sets so that they can enjoy hands-on, cross-curricular STEM projects that promote creativity while developing essential academic skills through peer collaboration.

My Students

Have you ever walked into a class and the students are bored out of their minds? All frowns, no smiles. Unmotivated, not engaged, and zoned out. Maybe, but that’s not Mrs. Williams’s 6th-grade scholars. I have the pleasure of teaching two eager 6th-grade classes: language arts and earth science. Each class consists of a diverse group of first-class students who are ready to build a better world by expanding their knowledge one learning adventure at a time. Join us now and make our 2018-2019 school year one to remember!!!

My Project

These LEGO educational sets will afford my students the opportunity to actively participate in creating various robots and coding them using technology. This project will add an instant spirit of innovation to the curriculum. Being able to bring various models to life will excite my students and motivate them to explore the world around them. Also as an extension of this project, my students will journal about their creative process. Since they will have actually taken the steps to create the models, their writing will be authentic and I expect their love for writing to grow. Hopefully, this experience will encourage my students to explore the world of engineering, robotics, coding and other STEM-based careers in the future. The goal of this project is for the students to be able to program robots and other creations as well as document and track progress using the documentation tools.
