My students need these new STEM kits for a unit of study on How the World Works.
This project expired on December 22, 2018.
Hooray! This project is fully funded
My students are young, inquiring minds that need resources to become global learners. They are a diverse group and excited to work as a team. Our school is one of four C.F. I. Magnet Schools in the Indianapolis Public Schools. We are focused on inquiry-based learning through reading and writing workshop. Part of our mission is to develop socially responsible citizens in a changing global society. Our urban setting allows for multicultural experiences in our immediate neighborhood and beyond. My 3rd grade students are eager to be hands-on in learning experiences! Hands-on learning creates engagement.
My students will love getting their hands on these STEM kits. We are about to begin an International Baccalaureate Unit of Study on How The World Works. This unit will focus on simple machines and how machines help create devices that we need.
Students will understand how simple machines function by getting their hands on these STEM kits.
Then they will identify a problem with the design of an object that reflects a need or a want. They will use the knowledge they have gained from the STEM kits and construct a device to solve a problem or make life easier.
