Harnessing Imagination With STEAM Activities

Harnessing Imagination With STEAM Activities photo

Fueled by creativity and collaborative inspiration, first-grade students in Kendra Bernagozzi’s class at Hiawatha Elementary School visited the building’s STEAM room to participate in several challenging hands-on activities with their classmates.

As an introduction to the STEAM room, student groups visited six stations that allowed their creativity to flourish. Incorporating several basic design concepts, students built cup towers and structures with Legos, arranged pattern blocks, crafted three-dimensional paper sculptures and worked with plastic gears.    

As students rotated through each station, they were continuously encouraged to try their best, explore, ask questions and learn from the mistakes they made while working on each activity.

Utilizing Math to Create Musical Connections

Recently, students in the fifth-grade band at Hiawatha Elementary School have been expanding their musical knowledge by studying rhythmic values in music notation. As a part of the rhythm studies unit, students have discussed fractions and completed an assignment called “Rhythm Math,” in which they added note values to find the sum. Throughout the year, students will further explore rhythms through interactive lessons and activities.
