My students come from diverse cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds. My classroom is the true depiction of a melting pot. Approximately half of my students speak a second language in the home. Our school is comprised of wonderful students and families from various countries around the world. Each day my students enter the classroom confident in knowing they are going to learn something new today, work hard, and try their best! Daily my students collaborate, encourage, and support one another in their learning.
The materials requested are all Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics focused! In today’s fast paced, problem solving, independently thinking society it is imperative my students are provided opportunities to develop such skills. Through the use of these S.T.E.A.M. Kits, my students will be required to use creative thinking, independent thinking, and problem solving strategies to complete each project. Each kit has a different concept. The Wood Pattern Block and Design kit requires students to use geometry shapes to complete a picture. The Design and Play STEAM kits challenge students to creatively using individual pieces to create various objects including an airplane and automobile. The Math Tower kits allow students to build or take down a tower while solving different operations. All kits allow for multiple students to work simultaneously, either with a partner or independently.
