  • My Class Needs science materials to fuel their creativity and exploration

    Launched December 1st, 2017 Project Deadline January 10th, 2018
    Classroom Size 23 Students School Size 410 Students

    My Students

    I have 23 amazing, enthusiastic Grade 5 students. They have a variety of learning styles all with low language arts skills. I would like each student to find personal success in their learning and have the opportunity to explore their curiosity to extend their learning in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.

    How will this project impact them?

    My hope is that the students will develop a greater appreciation in all aspects of their creative exploration in many subject areas especially in Science and Technology. My main focus for these gifts are to help students explore, play, and create in the area of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The dice will support student understanding in a variety of math concepts. Whereas, the technological gifts will further fuel their curiosity and wonder of the world around them by making personal connections/discoveries with the tools, materials and technology used for the class coding, electricity, and bridge building units. The goal is to provide the students the opportunity to develop their problem solving, critical thinking, team-building, decision-making, and collaborative skills.
