My students need STEM related engineering manipulatives to help them understand the Next Generation Science Standards. These K'nex kits will help them to understand Design and Motion, a 5th grade standard towards the new state testing.
Coming from hard-working agricultural families, my students are Mexican-American and Native American students from low-income households in rural Washington state. Our school district is 87% Free Lunch program qualified in a rural, agricultural area (dairy, apples, cherries, and grapes), with 21% of our students coming from migrant families. This tiny school district is on the border of one of the largest Native American reservations in the United States. Poverty and hunger are real. With a great lack of community income, school resources are stretched beyond shelf-life. These students lack the resources that richer, white school districts easily receive.
These K'nex kits will make a real difference in my students learning by helping them to understand the engineering part of our Science curriculum, in our 5th grade Design and Motion unit. Students will work with these K'nex manipulatives to understand pulleys, mass, force, movement, and energy. The donations to this project will help my students to understand Science and Engineering concepts that are new to them, with hands-on experiences that will make their learning meaningful and engaging. Students retain what they are learning through hands-on activities. These K'next kits will help my students for many more years to come.
