Stem Activities for Kindergarten

Help me give my students STEM activities to create enriching and creative Fun Friday Centers.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite the many challenges they face, I am looking to enhance their learning environment and provide my students with creative and meaningful learning experiences. Our students come from extremely low economic backgrounds with 100% of our students receiving free lunch.

Our Kindergarten Center has over 300 students with 13 classrooms.

It is a joy to see those little 5- and 6-year-old smiling faces each day, even if they had to overcome challenges before even reaching our doors. Because of budget cuts, our students currently do not have music, art, and physical education. Despite these shortcomings, the kids in my classroom, are excited, willing and ready to learn, and full of life and enthusiasm!

My Project

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. STEM activities provide real-life situations that help students learn through design and creating. How does this fit into Kindergarten? My little engineers will use their imagination to explore and discover math and science concepts by using hands on materials such as Magna-Tiles and gears.

My Kindergarten students love Fun Friday and all the fun activities that fill the day.

I would like to add to our Fun Friday by giving them STEM activities to choose during their center time. These STEM activities will get their little brains thinking and creating with their friends.
