My Students

My students are explorers, mathematicians, scientists, and authors! They love to learn and experience the world around them through hands-on activities.

My students are enthusiastic, fun-loving, and energetic learners!

They are learning to make smart choices and to solve their own problems. They love to teach each other and to work together to meet their learning goals. Some of the students in my class and throughout our school site may be currently experiencing homelessness. They do not have access to many basic learning supplies away from the classroom.

My students are always active and engaged in learning. They learn best when they are actively participating in their own learning. This project will help our class do just that!

My Project

My students need a dry erase marker board top kidney-shaped activity table to complete STEM based challenges in the classroom. One of the most important components of the STEM career field is collaboration! My students will use the dry erase table to collaborate with one another by writing their ideas, prototypes and designs directly on the table! This highly engaging way of learning will thrill my students!

My students are problem solvers!

A real-world problem they face each day at school is our lunchbox storage. We need a creative way to transport our lunchboxes from the cafeteria to the playground and back to the classroom again without losing any! My students are so excited to use our new dry erase table to create ideas, brainstorm, and begin engineering a mobile structure that will allow us to transport our lunchboxes to and from the classroom each day. I can't wait to see all their great ideas come to life as they begin to apply the engineering design practice in a real and practical way.

We are learning all about careers in first grade, specifically STEM careers and how we can use the engineering design process to problem solve. Through this project we'll be exploring how mechanical engineers solve everyday problems just like our lunchbox problem. My students are so very excited to begin and to become tiny mechanical engineers!
