Throughout the school year, your child will be participating in STEM activities.  The goal of STEM is to provide students with real-world problem solving opportunities.  STEM allows students to think outside the box with project-based learning.  Your child will be working on many exciting STEM projects this year.  Below is a list of household materials that we will be using to create our STEM projects.  If you are willing to donate any of the items below, please save them, and I will let you know when we are collecting them.  Thank you in advance for helping our class collect these items for STEM!  

Save these items for STEM:

-cereal boxes, paper towel tubes, tissue boxes, paper grocery sacks, oatmeal boxes, colored tissue paper, shoe boxes with or without lids, scrap pieces of cloth
