My Students

My students are some of the most creative children i have ever worked with. They love to work with their hands and create new things. My students are artist and imaginative. When given a problem, they come up with unique ways to solve it.

They love to learn and thrive during hands on learning opportunities.

When they are given differentiated activities, they choose the artistic and creative options. Each student is interested in technology and they want to learn more about it. They are becoming excellent problem solvers.

My Project

My students love hands on experience and I want them to be able to move from station to station and explore the world of force and motion first hand. They will be able to explore simple machines, build their own roller coaster, and see why things move. The best way to see force and motion is to experience it for yourself.

I want my students to SEE force and motion in action, not just read about it in a book.

There is no better way to teach force and motion than to allow the students to explore it through investigation.
