Osmo-ing Our Way to Learning

My students need an Osmo Genuis kit, along with some additional programs, to get hands-on with their learning and think critically.

My Students

The students in my class are a diverse group of fourth graders in a Title I school. My students are all at different stages of progress within their grade level, but we are all working toward a common goal of growth!

The students in my class are all unique and have different personalities that create a fun and creative classroom to be a part of!

My students just need the opportunity to learn hands-on and think critically be able to learn at their full potential.

My Project

Osmo is a great way for students to begin their development of critical thinking, a skill that has been lost within the past decades. Critical thinking fosters for student's ability to solve problems in the real world. It allows students to have the ability to find solutions.

Osmo makes learning enjoyable, helps promote critical thinking, and allows students to build on their prior learning experiences.

Osmo will make a difference in my students' learning by allowing them to enjoy the content they normally would not. It will allow students to interact in a fun and engaging way with one another, all while learning.
