Mr. Fox from San Pablo CA is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

STEAM Fun Financial Literacy

Help me give my students fun games like Payday, Monopoly, and Coast to Coast, that will help teach them learn both mathematics, to help put the M in STEAM, and teach them how to manage money and assets.

My Students

We would like to make sure that students are being exposed to a wide variety of STEAM activities, as well as Maker Ed. Currently they will be able to log in to the computers to complete advanced mathematics, learn coding, access Google apps for school projects and skill lessons. They will also being exposed to science-based activities such as virtual space activities, experiments, physics, and a wide variety of other activities.

Technology will be used to teach them computer skills and robotics, as well as utilizing 3-D printing.

In engineering, they will be designing objects to be printed. My students will be creating arts and crafts using various objects and tools. Mathematics is taught via equations, coding, and basic math fact practice, as well as coordinates. However, we are in need of more STEM learning opportunities by LEGO, which includes coding and engineering projects.

With the sudden emergence of COVID-19, and the shutdown of schools, we urge your immediate support of STEAM projects for distance learning.

My Project

This project will provide students, in a time of funding needs, with fun ways to learn about financial literacy. Games like Monopoly will teach students about buying and selling property, paying taxes and unforeseen bills, pay mortgages and rents. Games like Payday will teach students how to manage a specific amount of money given at certain periods. Coast to Coast will teach kids about buying and selling on a national level.

This project will help students of lower socioeconomic backgrounds practice money skills, learn about finances, buying and selling assets, and making deals with other entrepreneurs.

We hope that your generous donations will help bring this project to life.

Thank you in advance for your support!

Grades 6-8
