Mrs. Lake from Morrisville NY is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Second Grade S.T.E.M.

My students need spheros to help with our STEM projects that we participate in throughout the year.

  • $270 goal

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

My classroom is full of positive energy. We spend a great deal of time on collaborative learning. We currently participate in learning through many PBLs that are shared with the community at their completion.

My students are actively engaged and help to guide the path of their learning.

Our class is excited to share our knowledge with others regardless if it's one on one, in small groups, or whole group. The children feel safe to take risks and explore new ways of doing things.

My Project

Spheros are a great way to have children engage in STEM activities. In our classroom, I have students engage in STEM projects as often as possible. We integrate these activities into our general curriculum standards.

My students really enjoy and engage in hands-on learning.

It's the best way to solidify learning. We will use the four different colored Spheros I am requesting to build teamwork, collaboration, and individual technology skills. I plan to utilize them to strengthen math skills, ELA concepts, as well as, science and social studies big ideas. We have borrowed other teachers' spheros in the past and would like some of our own.
