My Project

A significant component of STEAM learning is integrating science into the creative learning process.

Hands-on, collaborative activities provide opportunities that empower students to take ownership of their learning and help them to find purpose, meaning, and joy in their education.

Students will apply the science concepts they are learning by building motorized propeller cars, DYI brush bots, and making paper circuits. They will use motors, brushes, and batteries to design and build propeller cars and DYI brush bots. Students will use batteries, LED lights, and copper tape to design and make light-up cards, posters, robots, and even pop-up book pages.

Students will connect to history through print-making, weaving, and needlework. Students will use the Speedball brayer to apply printing ink to a printing plate. Next, they will use a Speedball baren to put even pressure on the print page for a better ink image. Students will make a connection to the historical primary source documents that they are analyzing that used this printing method. Students will weave and do needlecraft to experience some of the activities that were part of early US settlers' daily life.

Multicultural books allow my students to view themselves and others and reflect on and discuss our world today. We will use the books for class read-aloud and book clubs. Through diverse books, students feel valued, creating a sense of community among the students and the classroom.

As my students work in teams to create models and simulations using the new STEAM supplies, they will develop critical thinking and collaboration skills they will need in their future careers.
