Little Pig, Little Pig Let Us In !!!

My students need STEM kits to dive deeper into critical thinking.

My Students

In order to have a future in this STEM focused world, my students need to have a good foundation with all aspects of science, technology, engineering and math.

Our class is made up of a diverse group of kids.

Most of the students' families are ethnically diverse, low income and non-English speakers. They have few opportunities for experiences outside of our classroom and many of the families struggle financially.

I want my students to be engaged in meaningful, academic tasks and activities such as STEM. My students are in need of Stem kts to help engage them in deeper and more meaningful learning through cross curricular areas. The Common Core Standards require our students to think, analyze and problem solve. Incorporating rich and project based inquiries with STEM materials will enable and encourage high interest learning.

My Project

I will use these Fairytale STEM kit materials to provide my students exceptional opportunities for investigation and higher level thinking skills in the classroom. They will engineer happy endings for fairytale characters that connect to fairytales we will be reading. This project asks them to imagine alternate endings to familiar stories and leads them to find STEM solutions through trial and error.

Many of my students struggle with reading, but I believe that combining a challenging engineering project with the book will inspire them.

These STEM kits will give life to literacy, science and math in our classroom. We will use these high quality materials in small groups and as early finisher activities. I cannot wait to see how they use these materials to become real thinkers, problem solvers, and analytical scholars.
