Welcome to our classroom of 29 very inquisitive, eager, ready-to-learn 4th graders. Each day we take a journey to learn, grow, and play together. Our school is in the process of becoming a STEAM school.
Our adventure has required a lot of cooperative learning, partner discussion, and compromise.
Sometimes these activities can be very challenging, but always rewarding. Our biggest obstacle is the difficulty to research our projects. We work hard each day to make learning long-lasting, meaningful and relevant.
STEAM education requires a lot of thorough research to be able to identify real world problems that need solutions. Students need the means to conduct this research with partners. Discussion will be much more meaningful if the students can delve into a topic and find out all aspects of the content. Having Chromebooks to conduct this research will help enlighten the conversations and problem-solving approaches used by the students.
Today's students are the scientists of tomorrow who will help us solve problems that we will all face.
Giving students the means to practice in the classroom will enable them to succeed in the future.
