My classroom consists of an amazing group of fourth graders! They attend a public school in sunny Arizona. Within my class population, I teach students with a wide range of abilities; from students who have learning disabilities or ADHD, to those that are gifted in math or language arts.
All of my students have eager minds and a great love of learning!
While they are a large group, they are amazing people. They work hard each and every day and treat each other as family. We have a wonderful classroom community.
By using EiE kits, students focus on meaningful, open-ended problems within a global context. These materials will guide my students through the Engineering Design Process by way of fun and creative problem solving. This specific kit allows students to become packaging engineers and their task is to design an "aid drop package" for a community that has suffered from a natural disaster.
My students will learn more about the role engineering plays in their lives and in the world around them.
They will be introduced to real engineering challenges and be asked to design solutions using the Engineering Design Process. I love the fact that all my students, regardless of ability level, will be able to contribute to this challenge! By incorporating science, technology, engineering, and math together, students in my class will be able to work collaboratively alongside their peers to solve real world problems.
