    My Students

    I teach fourth grade students. I usually have between 20 to 29 students each year. In my 20 years or so of teaching, I've seen it all. This is what I know for sure: Students have the need to be included, to create, to be active and to learn. STEM, which in STIM in French is the perfect way to incorporate SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY, ENGINEERING AND MATH into daily learning. These hands-on activities will be perfect for early finishers and kinesthetic learners.

    How will this project impact them?

    The STEM initiative inspires students to inquire, think, investigate, innovate and create. Students will have the chance to build objects that exist in the real world. They will compare, explore, collaborate and think outside the box. The STEM manipulatives in the classroom will allow students to work together on various projects that are both motivating and hands-on. STEM (SCIENCE-TECHNOLOGY-ENGINEERING-MATHEMATICS)
