Starting STEM Early

Instead of having my students work on papers or worksheets when they come into our classroom each morning, I have them use STEM boxes.  These boxes help my students develop critical thinking and problem solving skills.

My students loved using these boxes so much that they would race down the hallway each morning to grab their favorite one!  Read all about them here and get your own supplies to create some! 🙂

EDITED TO ADD: You can download the labels for these STEM Boxes here. 🙂

  1. Kristen,
    Do you have the labels for your STEM bins? I would like to have them or possibly a blank template where I can make my own?
    Thank you
