Winter STEM in Kinder

web posted February 4, 2019

020419mesMERRIWETHER - Sarah Kirkendohl, kindergarten teacher at Merriwether Elementary school, is always teaching engaging and creative lessons.

Her class has been participating in a unit about penguins. Student learning was focused on building knowledge by reading and writing about the penguin and its habitat.  At the end of the unit, students built habitats for penguins as a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) activity.

Students were put in groups and given one foam cup, several tooth picks, and large marshmallows. The STEM process allows students to ask about the problem, imagine the possibilities, plan to build, create the final outcome, and finally, improve their designs.

The last step in STEM is probably one of the most important. Her kindergarten students are learning how to evaluate their build, their plans, and their team work.

STEM education is just one way that MES is fulfilling the goals of Edgefield County School District. By using creativity, innovation, collaboration, and teamwork, Mrs. Kirkendohl is helping her students to become world class citizens.
