STEM-Tastic Earth Science for the Next Generation!

My students need Earth and Space Systems Building Blocks of Science unit kits as we transition to and learn the new NGSS science standards.

My Students

As a teacher in a low-income/high poverty school district, my students come from diverse situations. Some families are migrant farmers in the area and many students speak English as their second language. We are a Title I school, having many students on our free and reduced lunch program. My students are faced with several challenges both in and out of the classroom. Despite these challenges, I strive to keep learning fun, creative, meaningful, engaging, and highly motivating.

Our school district is run on the motto "Growing and Learning Together".

I work hard at bringing my classroom into the 21st Century so that students will be prepared to grow and learn for their best possible future. In addition to homelessness and poverty, many of my students have learning challenges. I teach general education, learning handicapped, autistic, RSP, students with ADHD, and GATE students. I want my classroom to be flexible and have the needed resources for personalized learning.

My Project

This Earth Science unit will be extremely helpful to the implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards my district is implementing. Not only will this unit assist in teaching the Next Generation Science Standards, it will help my students develop a set of thinking, reasoning, teamwork, investigative, and creative skills that they can use in all facets of their lives.

I want to spark an interest in my students to want to learn and deepen their knowledge in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math.

This kit incorporates activities across all curricular areas such as science, math, reading, and writing. Social and communications skills are also practiced. This resource will assist in building thrilling new ways to help my students explore important concepts hands-on!
