Mrs. Vaughan from Sparta NC is requesting Educational Kits & Games through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Third Grade Indoor STEM Recess

My students need Fiddlestix, a STEM Challenge kit, and a marble run to work on basic STEM projects while having fun in the classroom during indoor recess.

Hooray! This project is fully funded

My Students

I will be a new teacher in a new school this year. I don't know who my students will be yet but I want to be ready to introduce them to STEM projects during recess.

I want them to be able to have fun while playing and being creative.

I will be working with low income students who come from a variety of backgrounds and I want them to be able to come into my classroom and be as creative as they want to.

My Project

I would like to get some fun STEM materials for my students to use this year. I would like to be able to use these materials for fun Science and Math projects that the students work on together. It could be building the longest or fastest marble run, the biggest bridge, or a even creating a wind mill. I want them to be able to explore all the possibilities with these materials.

Using a marble run, Legos, and Fiddlesticks, will allow my students to work together to build things while having fun during indoor recess.

I really enjoyed working with these types of toys when I was growing up and I want my students to be able to enjoy them as well. I might even get down on the floor and help them make something as well!
