STEM And Health!

Help me give my students an external hard drive to store our multi media projects, a set of binoculars for our field trips, an impossible Gameball, and a small fridge to store our fruit and juices.

My Students

My classroom consists of fifth-grade students with high functioning autism. We are on the Common Core curriculum and follow the same pacing plan as the general education classes.

My students are motivated and have a thirst for knowledge.

I provide a safe and fun environment for them to learn in. Roughly half the day I teach in a whole group setting, while the other half is spent in small group settings where I can pinpoint needs and focus on individual weaknesses. We are a low income, Title I school made up of English learners and special education students. Most of my students do not have access to technology outside of the classroom.

My Project

In my class, I take great pride in programs that teach students how to eat healthy and teach student the importance of staying active. I want to motivate and empower my students to increase their consumption of fruits and vegetables. With a classroom fridge, we can save the fruit from breakfast and have it at various breaks.

I also want to make Physical Education more fun.

With an Impossible Game Ball, my students can play a variety of guessing games that will get them more active. We can integrate STEM into Physical Education! They will have to precisely throw and predict how fast, how far, or how high they can throw the ball. The ball connects to our iPads via blue tooth and tells us the exact distances!

A set of high power binoculars will make sure we do not miss anything on our field trips and an external hard drive will be used to store our papers and various multi-media STEM projects that we will create this year.
