My students face a lot of challenges, not only academically, but personally and socially as well. They are original thinkers and enjoy hands-on learning and activities with movement.
Our public elementary school in Indianapolis faces the daily challenge of educating and motivating students that live well within the poverty level.
Our students are very active learners. They love when we have flexible seating options, STEM projects, and a choice of tasks within their daily routine. They work best in a flexible, yet structured, environment.
I recently completed an online STEM training titled Picture Perfect STEM. In addition to providing STEM lesson plans, the training provided some valuable insight into the teaching of STEM concepts by integrating picture books and nonfiction books with STEM investigations. The requested items will support those STEM investigations.
Please help me to provide my students children's books and materials that support STEM concepts.
The materials in this request will support crayon investigations about the properties of matter. The students will use the silicone candy molds to solve a problem of broken and used crayons. The water books will be used in a investigation about where water is found on Earth. Thank you for your consideration!
