My Students

My class is made up of 18 very sweet boys and girls. I have a very dynamic group who have a common love: hands-on activities. They love to learn, they love to explore, they love to share about their own lives, they love to move. My students love activities where they get to use manipulatives, hands-on learning or, best of all, games. Several of my little ones love to think outside of the box.

I have learned that this group absolutely love to create their own stories, machines, and creations.

STEM activities are a great way for them to practice their skills in reading and math while growing their abilities to think outside of the box. They are learning and don't even realize it. I want to be able to strengthen their skills while letting them be their own learner. STEM activities would be awesome for this.

My Project

STEM Bins allow students to think inventively and imaginatively, solve problems with specified constraints, build creative designs, and so much more! This kit includes 22 different manipulatives to use with open-ended STEM activities with 16 storage bins.

This kit include 8 Challenge Yourself Cards that take structures to the next level, allowing my students to improve and enhance their structures.

There are also 8 Writing Prompt Cards for literacy extensions. This hands-on STEM solution kit is a creative and developmentally appropriate form of engineering for elementary students. I know my students would absolutely love to have this kit in our classroom.
