My students need the fully loaded mobile STEM station plus multiple activities like the blocks and blue print learning center to help challenge my higher thinking students and help my other students to think critically.
The students in my classroom are go getters. They enjoy technology, lessons that may be difficult, hands on activities, legos... anything that gets their brains working and thinking outside the box. Anytime I introduce a lesson, their question is, "Can we do a harder one?" or "Give us a difficult one Mrs. Mcfarland." They are all about taking it to the next level.
They want to learn, they want to be better and they want to teach their younger siblings what they know.
My students are very well behaved and most are early finishers. I've tried to give them activities to do if they finish early, but some how they don't seem satisfied. The fully loaded mobile STEM station will absolutely solve that problem. With all the activities included in this rolling shelf will not only engage my students after they've finished their work, it will also get their minds thinking critically and creatively.
My students need to be challenged and understand how many possibilities and opportunities there are in the world for them when they become adults.
These STEM activities will do just that. They will be able to see what it's like to build a bridge that's functional, create rollercoasters, make blueprints for houses or buildings, and solve problems through reading stories they know and love.
My students will want to complete their work just so they can learn through playing with these STEM activities. I can not wait to see what they come up with and be blown away by their creativity and skills.
