I have 19 fourth grade students who come to school excited and eager to learn! Our school was recently approved to be the only STEM elementary school with a focus on engineering in our district. Our school has over 400 students.
We are not a Title I funded school, so we do not receive as many resources as other schools may have.
Our average class size ranges from 20 to 30 students. We have a strong parent group that supports our school and classroom teachers as we transition to a STEM school.
This project aims to connect reading to STEM in my classroom by introducing my students to different STEM Biographies. These books will not only support our reading unit on biographies but support our school's vision of being a STEM school.
These biographies will allow my students to see the rich diversity among the STEM Innovators of our time.
These biographies focus on people who are women who are often underrepresented in our history books. It is my hope that these biographies will encourage my students to consider careers in a STEM field and that they might be able to make a personal connection to the subjects of the biographies because they have something in common with them.
