STEM: Bridges, Castles, Houses: Lets Build With Magnets!

Help me give my students the opportunity to explore 3D project building as teams using the Magnet-Titles Master Sets. In our classroom, we don't have enough magets for our teams.

My Students

My third and fourth grade students live in Anchorage and attend a diverse school, one of the most diversified elementary schools in the United States. In our school, our student diversity includes Alaska Native, Korean, Filipino, Chinese, Sudanese, Hmong, American Indian, Mexican, and Peruvian among other beautiful cultures. In the classroom, my goal is to challenge my students with various engaging activities to broaden their knowledge of the learning.

Third and fourth graders are enthusiastic learners and love project-based STEM projects using a variety of supplies to engage their learning in school.

The knowledge gained through STEM project-based learning increases their critical thinking skills in Science. Most importantly the SEL attributes encourages 21st Century Learning!

My students are eager to immerse themselves in any kind of challenge. They are curious, enthusiastic, and creative. STEM projects are engaging and rewarding for all students.

My Project

The use of magnets is almost a daily activity in my classroom, especially in Science and Math. Using the magnets will allow teams to collaborate in building bridges, 3D structures and learning about construction. Students are engaged and find using the magnets a challenging and rewarding experience. Most importantly, the skills learned provides the gateway to 21st Century Learning: communication skills, inquiry skills and innovation abilities in their learning.

By donating to our magnet building project, you will not only help to improve and increase student attention and focus, you will ultimately help to increase their academic achievement for the future endearvors in Science, Math and Engineering.

Current projects are small or incomplete due to the lack of magnets. Students will be able to focus on their structure projects without worrying if they have enough magnets for the project.
