The thing is...my daughter had a car accident over winter break, and now it is time to get a "new" used one. Propane in WI is over $5 a gallon and yikes that bill was over $1000. So, mama has to get another job. We have an after school program that gets our kiddos another 2 hours of school. Our focus is to design activities that provide them with CORE lessons: reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. I created a three week unit based on KNEX kits we have based on roller coasters. I can't wait until it starts next week. We have an engineer coming to start the unit off, having our kiddos see their potential and know that they can do anything if they put that extra effort into it. I also am working on the next sessions unit...cardboard arcade. Stay tuned.
Check out the roller coaster unit on TPT. You can use this great STEM unit for your classroom, too.
