My school is a large elementary school that houses kindergarten through 5th grade. This year we have over 1,000 students of varying abilities and exceptionalities.
My students are a wonderful group of second graders.
In my classroom, abilities range as does interest. One thing they all have in common is a love of reading and learning. Just like all children, they need to be exposed to knowledge in the most engaging of ways. I strive to create students who love learning just as much as I do.
These materials will be used in my second grade classroom to help foster the higher level thinking skills that are needed in today's society. Using both the Quadpro 36 Piece Magnet Tiles and the Goobi 110 Piece Construction Set students will be able to see how the tiles magically change from 2D objects to 3D Models.
Since both the Quadpro set and Goobi set employ an open-ended construction model, students will be able to design their own architectural projects and test them while being able to make adjustments to improve their designs.
My students will use these materials to help grow their creative and critical thinking skills while exploring the engineering world around them. As a bonus, both the Quadpro and Goobi sets will allow students to explore magnets, learn basics of geometry, physics, and architecture, enhance eye-hand coordination, and improve problem solving skills all in a fun and entertaining way.
