My students need consumable materials to design and construct race cars from recyclable materials. We need paper, tape and more.
Every year, I conduct a learning style inventory with my classes to target each student's personal learning style. Whether it is visual, auditory, or tactile, every lesson is designed to reach each type of learner.
I am a 5th grade science teacher in Northeast Arkansas.
There are over a 240 students in our fifth grade. Our school has a high percentage of students that qualify for free or reduced price lunch. The number of minority students has greatly increased over the last five years. Prior to fifth grade, my students have had limited exposure to science content in the elementary classroom. I consider it my responsibility to create a classroom that cultivates a love for science in my students. They are extremely eager to learn and love the opportunities for any type of hands-on experience.
Students will be involved in a unit called Recycled Racers, which combines learning about the benefits of recycling and engineering.
My students will use recycled materials to engineer their own toy cars, then compete in a Recycled Racer Rally.
In the process, they will learn about the engineering process - ask, imagine, plan, create, and improve. Students will begin by designing and building their own race car, with the help of the materials provided by this grant. They will then be able to test and redesign their car, improving their design. We end this unit with a family night, in which all families are invited to attend and watch their student compete in the rally.
