STEAM Up Kindergarten

Help me give my students tools to practice the engineering process in a fun way

My Students

My students are inquisitive, young and from around the world. I like to think this is what the UN must feel like at times, but I wouldn’t change it for anything. They keep me on my toes, and I’m better for it!

My classroom goal is to create a learning environment rich with hands-on activities that balance learning with creativity.

Students' academic success is increased using an integrated curriculum; a STEAM classroom provides these opportunities.

STEAM is an educational approach to learning that uses Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics as access points for guiding student inquiry, dialogue, and critical thinking.

My Project

Lego offers hands on tools to help the engineering process with young kids; plan, design, create. Each child will get a small Lego set to create an animal but without a visual aid the children will be able to use their own imagination while developing creativity and initiative.

This is just the beginning of a larger project but I need to start somewhere.

Also with our school under construction to be modernized there will be room changes and space for more learning so starting with small sets of Legos is a smart place to start. My goal is to have larger building sets with more mechanical pieces appropriate for kindergarten.
