STEM Activities That Inspire Creativity

Help me give my students STEM activities for school. My students love being creative and building structures. These activities will give my students the opportunity to express their creativity, while working on their social and problem solving skills.

My Students

I have been teaching Kindergarten for a few years now. My students are enthusiastic about using the inquiry process to learn about the content, information and engage with real-life manipulatives through hands-on experiences.

My absolute favorite thing about teaching this age group is that my students LOVE school.

They get excited about making new friends and learning about the world around them. For many of my students, this is their first school experience and I strive to teach my children how to love learning and that learning is a life long process.

More than half of my students come from low-income households. Many of my students don't have access to technology, books and learning materials at their house. Single-parent and foster parent households are common among my students. It is truly special when my young kids come through the classroom doors excited about learning.

My Project

Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) activities are beneficial to students of all ages. These manipulatives allow young children to express their creativity, while developing problem solving skills. In my classroom, I use STEM activities in my calming corner. When a student has a really strong feeling, such as being excited or frustrated, they are allowed to pull an activity off the shelf in order to focus on a different activity.

STEM activities in my classroom are used as a tool to help young minds grow and encourage positive peer relationships.

Students must work with each other to plan and develop a structural design. These quiet activities will get my students excited about learning.
