  • My Class Needs exploration and STEM materials to engage students in critical thinking skills

    Launched August 9th, 2017 Project Deadline January 10th, 2018
    Classroom Size 15 Students School Size 239 Students

    My Students

    Our kindergarten/ grade 1 class has 15 students in it this fall. The school is located in Langley, BC. Some families are middle class and some live just above the poverty line and struggle. We have a high rate of special needs in our school, as well, all the students in our school need a lot of support and flourish in motivating and engaging environments. I want to implement inquiry into as many aspects of learning as possible, bringing in open ended manipulatives, coding, and outdoor learning to help students learn.

    How will this project impact them?

    Students will use these resources to help them build critical thinking skills, social skills, problem solving skills, and help them become independent learners. Coding and STEM activities will help them develop problem solving skills for todays society. Natural materials will help connect to the outdoor learning that we will be doing to bring students back to nature; slowing down and realizing the abilities of simple things. These things will hopefully create better self-regulated and engaged students which adheres to our school wide mission statement. As well, if what they have learned stays with them, then these students will be able to become successful members of our community.
