I teach in a school that is very diverse with many different languages spoken at home. Students come to my classroom and want to learn new things everyday. They want to be able to connect with each other through lessons that we are learning.
I want to build a community in the room where every voice is heard and students can reflect and relate to what we are learning in class to their lives.
My students enjoy helping each other and being a teacher to all which not only supports their own learning but the learning of others as well.
With these STEM items, my students will be able to get their daily science instruction using these hands on materials as part of the lessons that we will be learning. Each year, 5th graders are tested as part of the state standardized testing for science. These tests consist of many educational parts that are all valuable to every day life and learning. With thepower tiles circuit kit and building brick STEM challenge kit, my students will work in small groups to build tracks, ramps, contraptions, and more while learning about motion, force, and all the parts related to STEM. Students will need to work in these small groups where they will coordinate a written agenda/plan, build the experiment related to STEM, share their findings/results, and teach all other groups what they learned from the daily lessons. These materials will add to our yearly science kits and will help students become interested in STEM once they see how engaging building these tracks, Legos, and motorized objects that we will use on a weekly basis.
